Intellectual Property

This section of the site explains intellectual property, and what you can do to protect it, including learning objects or open educational resources. This section also explains how to interpret creative commons licenses for objects you wish to use.

As outlined in Memorial’s Intellectual Property policy, Memorial University instructors usually own their Intellectual Property, including the lecture notes, course outlines, study guides, visual aids, and other course materials they create.

Memorial University’s community members are expected to uphold the “highest standards of academic integrity” while adhering to Memorial’s code.

See Creative Commons Licences and Academic File Sharing Sites for further information about how to protect your intellectual property.
