RFID Frequently Asked Question

Who owns the intellectual property created by the Auto-ID Center?

The Auto-ID Center was a unique partnership between industry and academia. Strictly speaking, the intellectual property belongs to the universities where the research is being conducted. The Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where the Auto-ID Center started, licensed the core EPC intellectual property to the Uniform Code Council on the condition that it be made available on a royalty free basis to any company that wants to use it.
