For GT undergraduate students
In most cases, undergraduate students may keep the IP right of their invention/innovation, if none of the following conditions apply:
When working on a research project funded by an entity other than Georgia Institute of Technology, the Georgia Tech Foundation, or the Board of Regents;
When employed by Georgia Institute of Technology; or
When required by the Office of the Provost. Such requirement may be recommended by a faculty member who has students working in faculty-directed researches.
Undergraduate students may seek coordinated legal assistance if they participate in programs, such as Create-X, VentureLab, etc. or use the Pro Bono program, if they qualify, or the Law School Clinic program for assistance in patent filing.
