Once in Weisskirchen a man said: . “I never, never do that.”

At the exact same time in Mühlhausen a woman said: “Beef with horseradish.”
Both of them said what they said, because there was no other way.

from “Glocke.” Kandinsky, Klange (trans. Napier)

Consider these two scenarios.

Scenario 1:

University offers a patent license to a new invention.

Scenario 2:

University offers a research review workshop led by the team that made the invention. Free non-exclusive patent license to the invention thrown in.
