A patent without honor

Dateline: Thu 08 Apr 2010

in its own land?

That appears to be the case. After the Star lavished attention, deservedly so, on Butler University's basketball program and NCAA Final Four participation, it seems that the buck stops at academia.

Hence the big nerws that two Butler chemistry profs have received the first patent in Butler's history was nothing more in today's paper than a press release rewrite in the biz section. Even the photo was supplied by Butler.

Congrats to the two deep thinkers: Michael Samide and Oiujide Akinbo, who created a thing that improves another thing used in labs re: medical, pharmaceutical and environmental research.

Patent law, by the way, is a growing legal industry; Indiana, with all its medical and science labs, emerging bio-tech corridors, etc., should do quite well. How lovely that not-so-little Butler has made another nice score.
