30.1 Intellectual Property Policy Statement

(Amended 8/17)

The University's policy on intellectual property pertains to inventions and copyrightable works created by its faculty members, staff members, postdoctoral appointees, students, and visiting scientists/scholars. Because there are differences between the legal and academic treatment of copyrightable works and inventions, the University provides two companion policy statements: an Inventions Policy and a Copyright Policy

As used in this policy, "visiting scientists/scholars" means persons who are not University employees, appointees, or students, but who may nevertheless visit the University to engage in research, scientific, scholarly, or related activities.
