Colleges and universities are known for their inspiring and innovative research. These collaborative environments present a unique set of requirements and challenges regarding intellectual property issues. It is vital for them to secure balanced and well-reasoned policies for the protection of a wide range of intellectual property assets.
In addition to protecting cutting-edge research and inventions, these organizations must implement and frequently review policies surrounding copyright and trademark laws, including clear statements about the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA). Educational institutions must wisely create license agreements to secure funding as well as protect their interests in advance of scholarly communications.
