In general, I welcome the day when universities get what is coming to them for this kind of stuff (see also: Marvell vs CMU for 300+ million, reduced from 1.5 billion on appeal, etc).

In particular, given how much industry funds them, collaborates with their professors, etc, what is going on now is a remarkably stupid approach mostly driven by tech transfer offices that want to prove their value.

Which will be "zero", once the tech industry starts cutting them off.

You think they're funding researchers at market rates?

Do you think the universities would really be getting anywhere without the help of the industries they are now pissing on?

Take away the faculty awards, industry collaborations, donated labs, donated computing time, hiring of interns, etc.
