Do I need to disclose software I have developed?

Yes. Software should be disclosed to the Office of Innovation Management before it is distributed so we can determine modes of distribution. For example, if the software was developed under a grant or contract, there may be certain restrictions or requirements limiting distribution. In addition, it may be desirable to patent certain elements of the software and distribution could negatively affect our ability to obtain any patents. Of course, we will consider trademark protections for the software, too.
