An analysis of current case law and the AAUP's October 2013 report
“Defending the Freedom to Innovate: Faculty Intellectual Property Rights after Stanford v. Roche.”

At the end of the day, who owns faculty work: individual faculty members or the institution?  In a classic lawyer answer, “It depends.”  The American Association of University Professors released the following report in October 2013 on “Defending the Freedom to Innovate: Faculty Intellectual Property Rights after Stanford v. Roche.”  Join law professor and higher education scholar Jacob H. Rooksby, M.Ed., J.D., Ph.D., as he discusses the AAUP’s report and the treatment of intellectual property rights in higher education.

Today’s faculty generate all kinds of scholarly output, including online courses, mobile apps, Internet publications, as well as more traditional works, such as books, articles, and patent-eligible inventions in the laboratory.  What happens when faculty members receive profits from this work or change institutions?

Faculty members and institutions naturally want clarity when it comes to ownership of these works and inventions.  The AAUP report highlights many of the legal and policy issues that have muddied the waters.

Join Professor Rooksby—who is Assistant Professor of Law at Duquesne University School of Law—on December 10, 2013 from 12:00 PM -1:15 PM EDT as he navigates faculty and administrators through the AAUP report and current case law.  This webinar will provide faculty and institutions an opportunity to understand how best to balance faculty and institutional interests in the realm of intellectual property, enabling your institution to have the most current information in this complex and rapidly-developing field.
