Tips for Using the CREATE Act

From Promote the Progress:
  • Include a portion of the Joint Reserach Agreement that can be used as an excerpt of the whole Agreement for recordation purposes at the Patent Office.
  • Include a broadly-worded field of research
  • Don't invoke the Act too early
  • Match the field of invention in patent applications to the field of research in the Agreement
  • Record an excerpt of the Agreement, not the entire Agreement
  • Consider the consequences of a terminal disclaimer before invoking the Act
