When Professors Create Software, Do They Own It, or Do Their Colleges?
Carlson, Scott
Chronicle of Higher Education, v46 n46 pA29,31 Jul 21 2000
Discusses the legal problem of whether professors themselves or their colleges own faculty-created software. Questions center on whether software is like traditional scholarly publishing (thus owned by the professor) or more like an invention or work for hire (and thus owned by the university). Also addresses copyright issues, the use of college equipment, and varying college policies. (DB)
