When universities invent, those inventions should benefit everyone. Unfortunately, they sometimes end up in the hands of patent trolls, companies that serve no purpose but to amass patents and demand money from other innovators and inventors.

Join Penn for Privacy and EFF Activist Elliot Harmon for a discussion on universities' patenting and technology licensing policies. Learn about Reclaim Invention, EFF's new initiative to urge universities to commit not to sell or license patents to trolls. Learn how you can urge your institution to adopt more innovation-friendly policies.
