WHAT THE STORY OF THE INVENTION OF THE TRANSISTOR TEACHES US
ABOUT 21ST CENTURY PATENT PRACTICE
LAWRENCE B. EBERT
ABSTRACT
In 1947, scientists at Bell Laboratories internally disclosed a remarkable new
invention that would later become known as the transistor. Following the initial
disclosure, Bell Labs methodically planned and facilitated the patenting, publication,
and licensing of this new technology. The manner in which Bell Labs handled the
disclosure and licensing of this pioneering invention provides a template that
present-day inventors would be well-advised to emulate.
