Bu Intellectual Property Agreement

9. Royalties or other proceeds of the University`s intellectual property will be passed on to individuals as set out in Section E. below. What happens if I can`t sign the agreement by this Friday? 2. The University recognizes and reaffirms the tradition in higher education that academic works such as books and articles, lectures, pictorial materials and other teaching materials are the property of the faculty member who writes them and not of the educational institution that employs them, even if they otherwise fall within the scope of section A.1 above. However, the Faculty`s ownership of such scientific work may be affected by the terms of the agreements with third-party sponsors set out in Section B.6 below or by agreements between the Faculty and the University relating to special projects such as the creation of online courses or other digital educational offerings referred to in Section B.7 below. The use of such scientific articles is also subject to the External Professional Activity of the University and the University`s policy on the Faculty`s participation in digital courses. This new intellectual property agreement replaces previous patent policy forms, covers all forms of intellectual property, and applies to both the Charles River Campus and the BU Medical Campus. Note that Boston Medical Center has a separate intellectual property protection policy.

BU and BMC have an agreement that coordinates these guidelines. This policy applies to all faculty, staff, and students of the university and applies to all forms of intellectual property subject to legal protection in the United States and/or abroad. Boston University`s recently revised Intellectual Property Policy, which came into effect on July 1, 2017, provides guidance for intellectual property (IP) management at the BU that enables members of the research community to make informed decisions about intellectual property and technology transfer. In accordance with federal regulations, we will require all professors, staff and students involved in BU research to accept the university`s intellectual property agreement. You can expect to receive this email notification tomorrow, June 4, from an online system called PolicyTech. THIS COURSE IS LIMITED TO students who have officially applied and been accepted to the Startup Law Clinic. The Startup Law Clinic is a year-round clinic that offers students the opportunity to work for real clients on a variety of issues that entrepreneurs typically face when starting new business ventures, such as .B. company choice, capital structure, stock allocation and compensation, intellectual property, and licensing agreements, financing and employment. Students also learn first-hand through their client work the ethical rules of professional liability with respect to corporate representation, including identifying the client, identifying potential conflicts of interest and advising clients and related persons regarding the nature and impact of the lawyer-client relationship. In addition to their fieldwork, students attend a weekly seminar that develops concepts and skills to support their work in the field. The seminar includes content-related lectures, student-led discussions and guest speakers, as well as students presenting and discussing their ongoing client affairs.

The clinic meets for two semesters, with more advanced seminar topics and increased responsibility for cases that occur in the spring semester. PRE/CO REQUIREMENT: Company. Students are also strongly advised to draft contracts and take certain IP courses (the IP Investigation Course and/or other subject-specific courses). NOTE: This clinic is one of 6 experiential learning credits required. NOTE: This course does not offer the CR/NC/H option. Please read on to find out why this guideline is so important for research and intellectual life at the BU.
