In November, NIST proposed to amend the regulations implementing the Bayh-Dole Act, 35 U.S.C. 200 et seq., which concerns intellectual property arising from federally-funded research, including 37 CFR sections 401 and 404. There were 15 comments, including a letter from KEI on December 9, 2016. EFF also provided comments. The other 13 comments to NIST were from Universities, associations or individuals taking the side of right-holders.
The KEI comments are available here.
The document, with the notice and all 15 comments, are available here: https://www.regulations.gov/docket?D=NIST-2016-0002.
