IT Services are running an event on Friday 6 November from 2-4pm on the subject of the IT Policy on IP.
This is the first in an occasional series of events designed to explain and seek feedback on University policies that relate to IT. This first event will outline Oxford’s current policies and regulations on intellectual property, meaning primarily copyright, database rights and patents in works created by University staff. They will also discuss how these policies differ from those at comparable institutions.
Perhaps more importantly they would like to hear from you about your experiences of the current policy and what you think of it. This feedback is very important in helping them to think about how current policies are presented and what issues they may have. This event is your chance to let them know about your opinions and experiences!
