Intellectual Property Forms
The creation and development of intellectual property at the University of Oklahoma encourages new business and is key to creating strong university-industry partnerships. OU has adopted an Intellectual Property Policy and has developed procedures for disclosing and protecting intellectual property.
|IP Policy (PDF)|
To begin the disclosure process:
|W9 - Request for Taxpayer Identification Number and Certification (PDF)|
A Confidentiality Agreement (CA) or Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA) is established when two parties wish to disclose confidential information for a specified purpose.
