[Micronet] Fwd: PLEASE SIGN NOW: UC Patent Amendment

Ian Crew
Hi all:

Anyone know if this is real?  Smells a lot like it might be a phishing attack to me.  (If it was a real message, why is it coming from "vres.us" instead of "berkeley.edu" or "ucop.edu"?)

Cheers,

Ian

Dear UC Colleague,

When you first joined the University of California, you signed a Patent Acknowledgment or Agreement (depending on when you joined UC) as a condition of employment or your ability to use UC research resources and facilities. Because of recent court decisions in the case Stanford v. Roche, it is necessary for you to sign an amendment to that document.

This amendment clarifies the original intent of the Patent Acknowledgment or Agreement you signed: to assign to the University rights to inventions and patents you may conceive or develop while employed by UC, using UC research facilities and/or resources, or using gift, grant or contract funds received through the University.

This is not a change in the Patent Policy; it is simply an amendment that clarifies the existing Acknowledgment or Agreement in light of the court decisions.

Your electronic signature on the Patent Acknowledgment/Agreement Amendment available here will ensure that the University is able to fulfill its intellectual property obligations to research sponsors, industrial partners, the federal government and others.

Signing the Amendment is easy. Simply write down your PIN number shown below; then click on the signature link to sign your Patent Acknowledgment/Agreement Amendment. You will also need your Employee ID number, which you can find by signing in to your personal account on At Your Service Online (https://atyourserviceonline.ucop.edu/).

Estimado colega de la UC,

Cuando usted entró por primera vez a la Universidad de California, firmó un Reconocimiento o Acuerdo de Patentes (dependiendo de cuando entró a la UC) como condición de empleo o de su capacidad para usar los recursos e instalaciones investigativas de la UC. Debido a decisiones judiciales recientes en el casoStanford v. Roche, es necesario que usted firme una enmienda a ese documento.

Esta enmienda aclara la intención original del Reconocimiento o Acuerdo de Patentes que usted firmó: de ceder a la Universidad los derechos a invenciones y patentes que usted pueda concebir o desarrollar mientras sea empleado de la UC, use las instalaciones y/o recursos investigativos de la UC, u obsequios, subsidios o fondos contractuales recibidos a través de la Universidad.

Esto no es un cambio en la Normativa de Patentes; es sencillamente una enmienda que aclara el Reconocimiento o Acuerdo existente a la luz de las decisiones judiciales.

Su firma electrónica en la Enmienda de Reconocimiento/Acuerdo de Patentes aquí disponible asegurará que la Universidad podrá cumplir sus obligaciones de propiedad intelectual con los patrocinadores de investigaciones, socios industriales, el gobierno federal y otros.

Firmar la Enmienda es fácil. Sencillamente escriba su Número de Identificación Personal (PIN) abajo; haga clic entonces en el enlace de la firma para firmar su Enmienda de Reconocimiento/Acuerdo de Patentes. Usted también necesitará su número de identificación de empleado, el cual podrá encontrarse entrando a su cuenta personal en Al Servicio de Usted online (https://atyourserviceonline.ucop.edu/).

Re: [Micronet] Fwd: PLEASE SIGN NOW: UC Patent Amendment

paul rivers

We're pursuing this now.

I've spoken with the folks at vres.us who have given me the names of the
UCOP folks to speak with about this.

It seems like a UCOP initiative with an ill-considered implementation,
but until we can speak directly with the UCOP folks, the jury is still out.

paul rivers
True, and there are a few other references on the ucop.edu site too.

Even so, I'd like a verbal confirmation from UCOP, as well as the
opportunity to discuss how these kinds of initiatives can be done in a
way that doesn't so closely mirror a mass phishing of campus.

Hi Ian,

I got one of these this morning. I forwarded it to consult at berkeley and asked if it was a phishing attack; they've logged it into their tracking system but that's all the reply I got.

If you go to atyourserviceonline at ucop dot edu, there actually is a link saying that we will get these e-mails and that we need to "sign" them by sometime next February 2012. So it's apparently legit.

However this is a crummy way to present it. There should have been a broadcast e-mail *from a berkeley.edu* address like chance dot berkeley dot edu, letting us know this was upcoming, rather than having the "verification" be to follow instructions in the body of the rather suspicious e-mail.

I am interested to see how many other people were bothered by this.

I agree, Paul. I hesitated, but been so busy with CalMail issues, I hadn't given it much thought.

Good to hear that it's legit, but there should be a way to verify these things to differentiate it from phishing because I would have a tendency to ignore it otherwise.

I just assumed it was a phishing email so I “junked” it and have already emptied my junk mail folder. Oh well…guess I’ll be getting a reminder/follow-up email to sign whatever it is UCOP wants me to sign. I think I’ll wait until the last possible day…

Dear UC Colleague,

When you first joined the University of California, you signed a Patent Acknowledgment or Agreement (depending on when you joined UC) as a condition of employment or your ability to use UC research resources and facilities. Because of recent court decisions in the case Stanford v. Roche, it is necessary for you to sign an amendment to that document.

This amendment clarifies the original intent of the Patent Acknowledgment or Agreement you signed: to assign to the University rights to inventions and patents you may conceive or develop while employed by UC, using UC research facilities and/or resources, or using gift, grant or contract funds received through the University.

This is not a change in the Patent Policy; it is simply an amendment that clarifies the existing Acknowledgment or Agreement in light of the court decisions.

Your electronic signature on the Patent Acknowledgment/Agreement Amendment available here will ensure that the University is able to fulfill its intellectual property obligations to research sponsors, industrial partners, the federal government and others.

Signing the Amendment is easy. Simply write down your PIN number shown below; then click on the signature link to sign your Patent Acknowledgment/Agreement Amendment. You will also need your Employee ID number, which you can find by signing in to your personal account on At Your Service Online (https://atyourserviceonline.ucop.edu/).

Estimado colega de la UC,

Cuando usted entró por primera vez a la Universidad de California, firmó un Reconocimiento o Acuerdo de Patentes (dependiendo de cuando entró a la UC) como condición de empleo o de su capacidad para usar los recursos e instalaciones investigativas de la UC. Debido a decisiones judiciales recientes en el casoStanford v. Roche, es necesario que usted firme una enmienda a ese documento.

Esta enmienda aclara la intención original del Reconocimiento o Acuerdo de Patentes que usted firmó: de ceder a la Universidad los derechos a invenciones y patentes que usted pueda concebir o desarrollar mientras sea empleado de la UC, use las instalaciones y/o recursos investigativos de la UC, u obsequios, subsidios o fondos contractuales recibidos a través de la Universidad.

Esto no es un cambio en la Normativa de Patentes; es sencillamente una enmienda que aclara el Reconocimiento o Acuerdo existente a la luz de las decisiones judiciales.

Su firma electrónica en la Enmienda de Reconocimiento/Acuerdo de Patentes aquí disponible asegurará que la Universidad podrá cumplir sus obligaciones de propiedad intelectual con los patrocinadores de investigaciones, socios industriales, el gobierno federal y otros.

In reply to this post by Nils Ohlson
The way I see it is if the University finds it important or necessary for me to sign something like this, then let some person from personnel present the actual paper document to me and then give me a real pen to sign it.   

When I see things presented like this, regardless of whether it is legit or not, it goes directly into trash.  If it is important then contact me directly.

Hi Ian,

I got one of these this morning. I forwarded it to consult at berkeley and asked if it was a phishing attack; they've logged it into their tracking system but that's all the reply I got.

If you go to atyourserviceonline at ucop dot edu, there actually is a link saying that we will get these e-mails and that we need to "sign" them by sometime next February 2012. So it's apparently legit.

However this is a crummy way to present it. There should have been a broadcast e-mail *from a berkeley.edu* address like chance dot berkeley dot edu, letting us know this was upcoming, rather than having the "verification" be to follow instructions in the body of the rather suspicious e-mail.

I am interested to see how many other people were bothered by this.

University of California Advisory Board
University of California

Dear UC Colleague,

When you first joined the University of California, you signed a Patent Acknowledgment or Agreement (depending on when you joined UC) as a condition of employment or your ability to use UC research resources and facilities. Because of recent court decisions in the case Stanford v. Roche, it is necessary for you to sign an amendment to that document.

This amendment clarifies the original intent of the Patent Acknowledgment or Agreement you signed: to assign to the University rights to inventions and patents you may conceive or develop while employed by UC, using UC research facilities and/or resources, or using gift, grant or contract funds received through the University.

This is not a change in the Patent Policy; it is simply an amendment that clarifies the existing Acknowledgment or Agreement in light of the court decisions.

Your electronic signature on the Patent Acknowledgment/Agreement Amendment available here will ensure that the University is able to fulfill its intellectual property obligations to research sponsors, industrial partners, the federal government and others.

Signing the Amendment is easy. Simply write down your PIN number shown below; then click on the signature link to sign your Patent Acknowledgment/Agreement Amendment. You will also need your Employee ID number, which you can find by signing in to your personal account on At Your Service Online (https://atyourserviceonline.ucop.edu/).

Estimado colega de la UC,

Cuando usted entró por primera vez a la Universidad de California, firmó un Reconocimiento o Acuerdo de Patentes (dependiendo de cuando entró a la UC) como condición de empleo o de su capacidad para usar los recursos e instalaciones investigativas de la UC. Debido a decisiones judiciales recientes en el casoStanford v. Roche, es necesario que usted firme una enmienda a ese documento.

Esta enmienda aclara la intención original del Reconocimiento o Acuerdo de Patentes que usted firmó: de ceder a la Universidad los derechos a invenciones y patentes que usted pueda concebir o desarrollar mientras sea empleado de la UC, use las instalaciones y/o recursos investigativos de la UC, u obsequios, subsidios o fondos contractuales recibidos a través de la Universidad.

Esto no es un cambio en la Normativa de Patentes; es sencillamente una enmienda que aclara el Reconocimiento o Acuerdo existente a la luz de las decisiones judiciales.

Su firma electrónica en la Enmienda de Reconocimiento/Acuerdo de Patentes aquí disponible asegurará que la Universidad podrá cumplir sus obligaciones de propiedad intelectual con los patrocinadores de investigaciones, socios industriales, el gobierno federal y otros.

Firmar la Enmienda es fácil. Sencillamente escriba su Número de Identificación Personal (PIN) abajo; haga clic entonces en el enlace de la firma para firmar su Enmienda de Reconocimiento/Acuerdo de Patentes. Usted también necesitará su número de identificación de empleado, el cual podrá encontrarse entrando a su cuenta personal en Al Servicio de Usted online (https://atyourserviceonline.ucop.edu/).

Re: [Micronet] Fwd: PLEASE SIGN NOW: UC Patent Amendment

paul rivers

I did confirm it was legitimate with UCOP.

We'll see what we can do to improve this in the future, so the
distinction between phishing vs legitimate is very clear.

Re: [Micronet] Fwd: PLEASE SIGN NOW: UC Patent Amendment

Bruce Satow
Even if it was legitimate, unless something like this is presented to me
in person, I would not do it.

When an email trend like this happens, for so called cost / time saving
excuses,  it creates the environment and opportunity for future abuse or
scams.

Re: [Micronet] PLEASE SIGN NOW: UC Patent Amendment

<base href="x-msg://179/">Ditto, Tod and Nils.  That is, I junked it, figuring if it WAS legitimate, there would be a follow-up from a legitimate authority like, oh say, the Executive Vice-Chancellor's office? Or some UCOP authority figure?

Interesting that an entity who handles the logistics of a contractual obligation wouldn't have done its own risk analysis before sending such an email -- and I mean both the contractor and UCOP parties who put this together.  I wonder how much experience this vendor has at this kind of communication in a large institution-setting.

I just assumed it was a phishing email so I “junked” it and have already emptied my junk mail folder. Oh well…guess I’ll be getting a reminder/follow-up email to sign whatever it is UCOP wants me to sign. I think I’ll wait until the last possible day…

Hi Ian,

I got one of these this morning. I forwarded it to consult at berkeley and asked if it was a phishing attack; they've logged it into their tracking system but that's all the reply I got.

If you go to atyourserviceonline at ucop dot edu, there actually is a link saying that we will get these e-mails and that we need to "sign" them by sometime next February 2012. So it's apparently legit.

However this is a crummy way to present it. There should have been a broadcast e-mail *from a berkeley.edu* address like chance dot berkeley dot edu, letting us know this was upcoming, rather than having the "verification" be to follow instructions in the body of the rather suspicious e-mail.

I am interested to see how many other people were bothered by this.

Hi all:
 
Anyone know if this is real?  Smells a lot like it might be a phishing attack to me.  (If it was a real message, why is it coming from "vres.us" instead of "berkeley.edu" or "ucop.edu"?)
 
Cheers,

Dear UC Colleague,

When you first joined the University of California, you signed a Patent Acknowledgment or Agreement (depending on when you joined UC) as a condition of employment or your ability to use UC research resources and facilities. Because of recent court decisions in the case Stanford v. Roche, it is necessary for you to sign an amendment to that document.

This amendment clarifies the original intent of the Patent Acknowledgment or Agreement you signed: to assign to the University rights to inventions and patents you may conceive or develop while employed by UC, using UC research facilities and/or resources, or using gift, grant or contract funds received through the University.

This is not a change in the Patent Policy; it is simply an amendment that clarifies the existing Acknowledgment or Agreement in light of the court decisions.

Your electronic signature on the Patent Acknowledgment/Agreement Amendment available here will ensure that the University is able to fulfill its intellectual property obligations to research sponsors, industrial partners, the federal government and others.

Signing the Amendment is easy. Simply write down your PIN number shown below; then click on the signature link to sign your Patent Acknowledgment/Agreement Amendment. You will also need your Employee ID number, which you can find by signing in to your personal account on At Your Service Online (https://atyourserviceonline.ucop.edu/).

Estimado colega de la UC,

Cuando usted entró por primera vez a la Universidad de California, firmó un Reconocimiento o Acuerdo de Patentes (dependiendo de cuando entró a la UC) como condición de empleo o de su capacidad para usar los recursos e instalaciones investigativas de la UC. Debido a decisiones judiciales recientes en el casoStanford v. Roche, es necesario que usted firme una enmienda a ese documento.

Esta enmienda aclara la intención original del Reconocimiento o Acuerdo de Patentes que usted firmó: de ceder a la Universidad los derechos a invenciones y patentes que usted pueda concebir o desarrollar mientras sea empleado de la UC, use las instalaciones y/o recursos investigativos de la UC, u obsequios, subsidios o fondos contractuales recibidos a través de la Universidad.

Esto no es un cambio en la Normativa de Patentes; es sencillamente una enmienda que aclara el Reconocimiento o Acuerdo existente a la luz de las decisiones judiciales.

Su firma electrónica en la Enmienda de Reconocimiento/Acuerdo de Patentes aquí disponible asegurará que la Universidad podrá cumplir sus obligaciones de propiedad intelectual con los patrocinadores de investigaciones, socios industriales, el gobierno federal y otros.

Firmar la Enmienda es fácil. Sencillamente escriba su Número de Identificación Personal (PIN) abajo; haga clic entonces en el enlace de la firma para firmar su Enmienda de Reconocimiento/Acuerdo de Patentes. Usted también necesitará su número de identificación de empleado, el cual podrá encontrarse entrando a su cuenta personal en Al Servicio de Usted online (https://atyourserviceonline.ucop.edu/).
