The university renounces its intellectual property rights for the benefit of the inventor or authors only if the university finds that it has no general interest in the ownership of knowledge and that such a waiver: (i) would improve the transfer of knowledge to applications useful to the common good; (ii) does not raise a conflict of interest; and (iii) in accordance with the university`s obligations to third parties, particularly research sponsors. 2. The university recognizes and confirms the tradition in higher education that academic works such as books and articles, lectures, visual materials and other teaching materials are in the possession of the faculty member who builds them, not the occupied educational institution, even though they are also under Section A.1. However, faculty ownership may be affected by the terms of agreements with third-party sponsors, covered in section B.6 below, or by agreements between the faculty and the university with respect to specific projects such as the creation of online courses or other digital training mentioned in section B.7 below. The use of such scientific work is also subject to external professional activity policy and investment policy in the event of involation in university digital courses. Everyone at the university is invited to respect the rights of other intellectual property owners. With very limited exceptions, the use of protected intellectual property without the owner`s permission is illegal and can result in significant civil and/or criminal penalties. University professors and researchers have all the rights to the mind they have created. This allows them, not the institution, to decide whether they want to patent patents and how they want to develop their discoveries, even if the underlying research has been supported by public funds. As a general rule, the university has some form of license to use the IP. In some cases, the inventor may be shared with the institute if the institute provides the inventor with essential support for technology transfer. Examples of teacher privileges are Italy and Sweden. Similarly, members of the Boston University Community disclose intellectual property as patentable inventions, including copyrighted software, where the author/creator considers intellectual property to be a commercial potential or if, by other means, the granting of a license or transfer to public use is considered a publication or placement in the public sector.
In research, scholarships, education and other activities, Boston University teachers, staff and students create patentable inventions, copyrighted works and other forms of intellectual property that deserve legal protection and have financial, scientific and scientific value. The university strives, as far as possible, for a targeted translation of intellectual property into social property.
