Is an invention ever reassigned to an Inventor?

If Yale decides that it does not wish, and has no legal obligation, to participate in the patenting or licensing of an invention, Yale may release its interest in the invention to the inventor(s) in exchange for a share of any future income and the right to practice the invention for Yale’s research and educational purposes. Such a release will require the agreement of all inventors. Reassignment of inventions funded by the U.S. government may also require the government’s prior approval.
