COLUMBUS—State Representative Marlene Anielski (R-Walton Hills) announced that the Ohio House has passed legislation that would expand current law to protect intellectual property resulting from research conducted at charter county hospitals.


Under current law, charter county hospitals do not have protections for inventions, discoveries, or patents created in their facilities. House Bill 453 would permit the same protections given to state universities and colleges and their associated hospitals. The bill ensures that all rights to and income procured from intellectual property belong to the hospital.


“I was proud to have had the opportunity to guide House Bill 453 through the State and Local Government Committee. The bill will protect charter county hospitals’ intellectual property rights,” Rep. Anielski said. “I am hopeful that the legislation will help encourage important medical advances which could lead to inventions and patent creations.”


The legislation specifies that an individual may still profit from the intellectual property, but the charter county hospital must set the terms with the employee.


House Bill 453 passed with overwhelming support and now awaits consideration by the Ohio Senate.
