The University of British Columbia has several policies referring to intellectual property.
These policies apply equally to all students, faculty and staff, regardless of their position at the University, and to others connected with the University, such as visiting faculty or researchers who develop intellectual property using University facilities or with funds administered by the University.
The policies generally apply to scholarly work conducted while you are enrolled at or employed by the University. Copyright and other intellectual property rights to scholarly and literary works—including books, lecture notes, laboratory manuals, artifacts, visual art and music—produced by those connected with the University belong to the individuals involved. Publishers of these works may acquire copyright as a condition of publication.
