Paper Abstract

Patents, copyrights, and other intellectual property issues such as inventorship and authorship, respectively, are of great and growing concern to the technologist. Issues concerning these matters are taken up here with emphasis on an example of optical storage technology: the invention of the pulse-modulated, optical disk system. Foreign law differs in many cases from U.S. practice and will not be considered here.
