PART 1245-PATENTS

Subpart 4-Foreign Patent Licensing Regulations

New Subpart 4 is added:

Subpart 4-Foreign Patent Licensing Regulations Scc. 1245.400 Scope of subpart. 1245.401 Policy. 1245.402 Types of licenses and terms and conditions. 1245.403 Government license. 1245.404 Enforcement of patent rights. 1245.405 Procedures.

AUTHORITY: The provisions of this Subpart 4 issued under 42 U.S.C. 2457 (g) and

(h).

$ 1245.400 Scope of subpart.

(a) The subpart establishes the policy, terms, conditions, and procedures under which NASA-owned foreign patents and patent applications may be licensed.

(b) The provisions of this subpart apply to all NASA-owned patents granted in countries other than the United States and to NASA-owned patent applications pending in such countries and supplement the provisions of Subpart 2 of this part for foreign patent licensing $ 1245.401 Policy.

The foreign licensing program of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration serves to promote and utilize foreign patent rights vested in the Administration. The objectives of this program are to further the interests of United States industry in foreign commerce, to enhance the economic interests of the United States, and to advance the international relationships of the United States. $ 1245.402 Types of licenses and terms and conditions.

Licenses will be individually negotiated and may be granted to any applicant, foreign or domestic, on a nonexclusive or exclusive basis for royalties or other considerations and on such other terms and conditions as are deemed appropriate to the interests of the United States. Preference in the granting of foreign license rights will be shown to those applicants who have previously been granted a license under the corresponding U.S. patent or patent application. $ 1245.403 Government license.

There will be reserved from each exclusive license an irrevocable, nonexclusive, nontransferable, royalty-free license for the practice of such invention throughout the world by or on behalf of the United States or any foreign government pursuant to any existing or future treaty or agreement with the United States, $ 1245.404 Enforcement of patent rights.

An exclusive licensec will be authorized to enforce the licensed patent and to sue infringers of the patent at its own expense. $ 1245.405 Procedures.

(a) NASA will publish in the United States, and elsewhere as inay be appropriate, lists of NASA-owned foreign patents or patent applications available for licensing.

(b) NASA will also furnish written notice of the availability for licensing of NASA-owned foreign patents or patent applications to any licensee under the corresponding U.S. patent or patent application.

(c) Applications for license should be addressed to the Administrator, National Aeronautics and Space Administration, Washington, D.C. 20456. The application must fully identify the patent or patent application, and state the type of license requested together with proposed terms and conditions thcreof.

(d) The conduct of negotiations with prospective licensees will be the responsibility of the General Counsel, NASA. In the conduct of such negotiations, due regard shall be had for the possible interests of NASA program and staff offices, and their coordination will be obtained as deemed appropriate.

(e) NASA will publish notice in the FEDERAL REGISTER, and elsewhere as may be appropriate, of its intention to grant an exclusive license under an identified patent or patent application. An exclusive license will not be granted until the expiration of 60 days from the date of notice in order to provide a suitable time interval for interested persons or other Government agencies to interpose comment or objection.

(1) All liccnscs shall become effective upon the written acceptance by the licensee of a license instrument specifying the type of license and terms and conditions thereof.

Effective date. The provisions of this Subpart 4 are effective upon publication in the FEDERAL REGISTER.

SYSTEM FOR RECORDING AND REPRODUCING

PULSE CODE MODULATED DATA

(Corresponding to U.S. Patent No. 3,277,3731

In pulse code modulated magnetic tape recording and reproducing (playback) systems, the playback head tends to alter the shape of the recorded signal. Accordingly, the reproducing system must reconstruct the proper signal from the altered one. This invention eliminates the need for this reconstruction function by the design of the playback head in which the head gap is approximately one-half the wave length of the recorded pulse code modulated data at its fundamental pulse repetition frequency. The play back head thus provides an output signal which is an integral of the recorded signal and contains all of the recorded information. The invention also allows a higher packing density of the recorded information on the magnetic tape.
