"The Fruits of Intellectual Labor": International Student Views of Intellectual Property
Datig, Ilka; Russell, Beth
College & Research Libraries, v76 n6 p811-830 Sep 2015
In this paper, we report on the results of a study conducted at New York University Abu Dhabi in the fall of 2013. Our goal in the study was to gain a global college student perspective on issues related to intellectual property, including copyright and plagiarism. We found that, contrary to popular opinion, most of our students have a solid understanding of the nature of intellectual property rights, as interpreted within the North American higher education community. In addition, the majority of our students view violations of intellectual property rights and norms, such as plagiarism, negatively.
