    the use of the results to make a product or found a company. That is covered by technology transfer agreements with the university. If you think you can take the results of your research and set up a company or sell the rights of that research to a company without the permission and usually part interest in royalties by the University you are woefully underinformed.  This is about the ability to read  the research and maybe allow somebody who is in a company that would like to invest in your work and make you rich,  to even hear about your wonderous research since many companies do not want to pay the usual $39 to $46 cost of downloading a paper published in an Elsievers Journal.
