of Course Materials Originated by Designated Instructional Appointees.
Except as provided below, ownership of the rights
to Course Materials, including copyright, shall reside with the Designated
Instructional Appointee who creates them. However, the University retains a
fully paid-up, royalty-free, perpetual, and non-exclusive worldwide license
to any Course Approval Documents for the purpose of continuing to teach the
course of instruction for which the documents were prepared, with the non-exclusive
right to revise and update them as required for this purpose.
Work, Student Work, Sponsored Work, Commissioned Work, and Contracted
of Course Materials that constitute Personal Works, Student Works,
Sponsored Works, Commissioned Works, or Contracted Facilities
Works are defined in and shall
be governed by the University of California Policy on Copyright
Materials Created with the Use of Exceptional University Resources.
Ownership of the rights to Course Materials created, in whole
or in part, by Designated Instructional Appointees with the use of Exceptional
University Resources shall be governed by a written agreement entered into between
the Originator(s) and the University. The agreement shall specify how rights will
be owned and controlled and how any revenues will be divided if the materials are
Chancellors and Laboratory Directors manage University Resources
under their control. Chancellors shall develop campus policies and procedures to
assist campus resource managers to determine when Exceptional University Resources
are involved and will assess the need for an agreement prior to the commitment of
resources to a project to which this provision might apply. The University may at
any time request a new agreement, or renegotiation of an existing agreement, as a
condition for the subsequent allocation or continuation of Exceptional University
Resources provided to Designated Instructional Appointees. In the absence of an
agreement, course materials will not be deemed as created with the use of Exceptional U
niversity Resources, and ownership of these materials shall be governed by Sections III.
A, III. B, and III.D of this Policy.
To promote increased Universitywide understanding of the evolving
circumstances of the use of University resources in instruction, copies of all agreements
for Course Materials created with the use of Exceptional University Resources shall be
filed with the UC Standing Committee on Copyright.
Ownership of rights to Course Materials that are
created by the intellectual labor of more than one person shall be owned
jointly, pursuant to the provisions of the Policy on Copyright Ownership,
Section V. If Course Materials are created jointly, ownership of those
contributions of Designated Instructional Appointee(s) shall be governed by
this Policy, and the contribution of others shall be governed by the Policy
on Copyright Ownership. Ownership of the rights to jointly originated Works
shall be determined by separately assessing the Category of Work of each Originator
pursuant to the Policy on Copyright Ownership.
