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
The following 'Specified Acts' means any of the following classes or types of acts or omissions by or on behalf of the AIC:
- using, reproducing, adapting or exploiting all or any part of the Project Material, with or without attribution of authorship
- supplementing the Project Material with any other material;
- using the Project Material in a different context to that originally envisaged.
This does not include false attribution of authorship.
