The fields of use may be limited to pool products and supplies. NASA has not yet made a determination to grant the requested license and may deny the requested license even if no objections are submitted within the comment period.
The prospective partially exclusive license may be granted unless NASA receives written objections, including evidence and argument, no later than August 14, 2017 that establish that the grant of the license would not be consistent with the requirements regarding the licensing of federally owned inventions as set forth in the Bayh-Dole Act and implementing regulations. Competing applications completed and received by NASA no later than August 14, 2017 will also be treated as objections to the grant of the contemplated exclusive license.
