Revenue to Inventors

Revenue Sharing

Additional information can be found here.

If an invention is commercialized, the Inventors share in any revenue stream and may receive equity in any UAMS startup company that might be formed. Under University policy, after patent costs are reimbursed, the Inventors, or the Inventors’ heirs, successors, or assignees shall receive fifty percent (50%) of the first two hundred thousand dollars ($200,000) of net royalties or other net income from the commercialization of an invention. For any net royalties or other net income above $200,000, after patent costs are reimbursed, the Inventors or the Inventors’ heirs, successors, or assigns shall receive thirty-five percent (35%). Royalties will be distributed annually or in some cases more frequently, depending on when they are received and the gross amount received. Net royalties are for this purpose defined as gross royalties received by the University minus the costs for patenting, licensing, and the protection of patent rights and copyrights.
