Intellectual property (IP)


Many of the major issues concerning IP relate to the inventor's and/or owner's legal rights to exploit this property.

1.1. Ownership of IP

Intellectual Property Rights in Project Material vest immediately with the Australian Institute of Criminology (AIC); however, in some instances the applicant may be named as the Intellectual Property Owner, and this will be set out and specified in the Funding Deed signed by all successful applicants.

1.2. Licence of project material

Where the applicant is stipulated as the Intellectual Property Owner, they grant to the AIC a permanent, irrevocable, free, worldwide, non-exclusive licence (including a right of sublicence) to use, reproduce, communicate, adapt and exploit the Intellectual Property Rights in Project Material for any purpose as described by the Funding Deed.

1.3. Specified Acts relating to moral rights

1.4. Consent to Specified Acts

Where the applicant is the author of the Project Material, they must consent to the performance of the Specified Acts by the AIC
