HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -
Amy Bishop Anderson, confessed UAH shooter, and her husband are eligible to receive royalties for an invention they created starting in October.
Bishop Anderson and her husband, Jim Anderson, invented a cell incubator which is described as an automated petri dish.
Under the university's patent rule, UAH owns the patent.
It states that any invention or discovery "which is the result of research carried on by or under the direction of an employee of a campus of the University," or is funded by the university is the property of the university.
However, the credited inventors are entitled to 70 percent royalties of any invention that generates up to $50,000 and 40 percent for any invention that generates more than $50,000.
It is unclear if or when they will receive the royalties.
