The institution’s policies are clear concerning ownership of materials, compensation, copyright issues, and the use of revenue derived from the creation and production of all intellectual property. These policies apply to students, faculty, and staff.
Documentation is provided that the policy has been approved, implemented and disseminated.
The off-site committee is correct in this finding as at the time of the submission, the board of trustees had not yet approved the intellectual property policy. The Intellectual Property policy was approved by the Board of Trustees of the college on April 12, 2008. Faculty, staff and students are apprised of the policy through a number of means. The full policy is available on the college’s intranet. (See Morehouse College Policies and Procedures Manual). A summary of the policy’s terms, with reference to the full policy, is included in the staff, faculty and student handbooks.
