This case underscores the vast differences between copyright and patent law; particularly considering the federal-funding angle, I somewhat expected the Court to rule in favor of the employer. Anyway, this patent litigation should serve as a lesson (especially to universities) that it's not always enough to reduce agreements to writing; you also have to make sure that such agreements are legally airtight.
