In this follow-up video to the first vlog, “Intellectual Property in Higher Education, Part 1: Trademarks + Licensing,” Warner Partners Mary Bonnema and Scott Keller now cover patent and copyright issues in higher education. Inventions not only benefit the colleges or universities at which they are developed, but also advance society as a whole. Thus, it is imperative that schools discuss and put policies in place to determine who owns, controls and profits from such inventions and how generous they can be with the creators themselves, i.e., faculty and students. The same can be said of works of authorship covered by copyrights. Additionally, schools must be careful to ensure they have the appropriate rights for the use of all content they are using in advertisements or for other promotional purposes. When addressing ownership and other issues in patents and copyrights, Warner attorneys can assist you in creating the right policies and procedures to prevent litigation down the road.
