Don Gorges __lead to – Supreme Court Affirms CAFC in Stanford v. Roche on Bayh-Dole – “This morning the United States Supreme Court issued its decision in Stanford v. Roche, a decision that has been much anticipated in the technology transfer world.” – “Since 1790, the patent law has operated on the premise that rights in an invention belong to the inventor.” The question here is whether [-] the Bayh-Dole Act—displaces that norm and automatically vests title to federally funded inventions in federal contractors. We hold that it does not.” _ [http://www.ipwatchdog.com/2011/06/06/supreme-court-affirms-cafc-in-stanford-v-roche-on-bayh-dole/id=17594/|leo://plh/http%3A*3*3www%2Eipwatchdog%2Ecom*32011*306*306*3supreme-court-affirms-cafc-in-stanford-v-roche-on-bayh-dole*3id%3D17594*3/UFgJ?_t=tracking_disc] _  2d ago

Don Gorges Don Gorges __Textbook author, McGill University economics professor, Christopher Ragan, explains [-] that publishing companies have a relatively low return on equity rate, often due to the competitive and risky nature of the industry. _ [that] textbooks are considered authoritative sources of information, and are therefore subject to rigorous review processes; have professional-quality visual communications and production values and lastly, today’s professors and students want an array of add-on features including instructor’s manuals, electronic lecture slides, multiple-choice exam questions, ebook access, and custom-designed online platforms to complement the textbooks.  2d ago

Don Gorges Don Gorges __I agree, Brian, the growing awareness of OER is surely due to David Wiley’s articulate presentations that frame OER as “for the public good’ and “a moral imperative” and attempting to shape public opinion-policy by painting Educational Publishers as an “evil, immoral” enterprise, charging “outrageous prices” for ©ER. Clearly, over the past year, the politics of Wiley’s OER message has shifted over into the realm of a marketing strategy as we read about the “golden ratio” and “learning outcomes per dollar metrics. Arguably the de facto Chief Marketing Officer of his company, David is effectively leveraging his reputation as a leader in the OER movement in the positioning of Lumen Learning.  8d ago
