I'm still wondering does the UNM team approached Intel to actually review the patent and understand if they really used the technology for the double patterning. UNM will make a lot of money even if the licensing fee is small since the amount of Intel production is really huge.

I'm sure it is a financial decision. Must be a relatively cheap license. My prior company received notice from UNM that they were infringing on this patent. I reviewed the patent and advised "do not license". Not sure of the outcome.

Interesting. With this prior art in existence, why do you suppose that other companies have chosen to license the technology rather than fight?

Maybe Intel will be the one to finally fight this infringement suit. The UNM patent should not stand up to a court challenge because there is substantial prior art, from IBM, AMD and others.

The unfortunate fallout of that mess would be layers and university execs getting well paid while the students and inventors will get little...Kris

It think that if our tax dollars are given to research, and that research proves fruitful, then taxpayers should be enriched. Many employers give a dollar for a patent, and employees continue working. UNM should expect the same. In this case, we taxpayers gave money to UNM, then UNM sues (and wins) overseas users of that technology. Where in here did the taxpayer benefit? Where in here did it make U.S. jobs or even step up U.S. competitiveness? UNM rakes it in on both ends. Give the good lawyers a cookie!

If all the US universities follow the precedent, many industries will not survive. These schools have generated lots of ideas, published freely, then picked by industry and patented.

It is the model of new America. The presidents make million bucks a year in these schools and they have to generate quick revenue.

Come on, given the outcome of other licensees; TSMC and Samsung, University of New Mexico patent position seems to be a good one. Obviously there is a lot of Intel academic engineering knowledge in State of New Mexico from Intel operations there. And not all process IP belongs to Intel as a result of that location. Regardless of Intel evolving from University patented methods the foundation can remain. Everyone in this industry knows Intel is a common, recognized, acknowledged , judicially proven thief.

Can anyone say, "University of California at Berkeley" and "SPICE" for beginners? This is not a new concept. I also fail to understand why anyone would say "License at the Federal Level"? State Universities may get federal funds, but the research is conducted locally, and should benefit the organization that conducts the research.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
