Dr. James T. Brown’s Project Scheduling Methodology Patent is sold to Intellectual Property Ventures
Orlando, Florida (March 15, 2006)—The University of Central Florida, owner of Dr. Brown’s patent for a project scheduling methodology, announced that the patent was recently sold to Intellectual Property Ventures. The patent was an outcome of Dr. Brown’s dissertation research while at the University of Central Florida as a graduate student. Initially the University balked at the idea of patenting a scheduling method. Dr. Brown stated that he was surprised the patent sold after so many years on the shelf, but was pleased and hopeful that practical value in the research will be fully recognized. Dr. Brown has assisted a major project software vendor with the development of their product that is still in use today.
