This policy implements and supplements Arizona Board of Regents (“ABOR”) Policy 6-908, which governs Intellectual Property developed by employees, Students, and others connected to or affiliated with Northern Arizona University. This policy provides additional detail and guidance regarding the creation, ownership, protection, use, disposition, and transfer of Intellectual Property at the University. Additionally, procedures for the disclosure of, dispute resolution, and the distribution of revenue generated by Intellectual Property are provided. Although the ownership of Intellectual Property developed by an employee in the course and scope of their employment is vested with ABOR, this policy provides for the employee’s close participation in protecting and enhancing its value and in sharing any resulting rewards.
