The DSSC, CMU, and its affiliates evaluate invention disclosures and their potential as patents according to our decision process. This process gives all interested parties the opportunity to evaluate and pursue patents according to their rights and privileges based on their role within the university or the terms of their relationship with the university.

In the event there is a disagreement between the DSSC and the individuals listed as inventors on a disclosure as to whether or not an invention is the result of a DSSC project subject to the DSSC IP policy the arbitration flowchart describes the procedure to resolve such disputes.
