Shared Ownership

All materials, products, objects or processes, slides, specimens, films, recordings, diagrams, books, manuals and similar instructional matter produced by an employee within the scope of his or her employment is considered "work made for hire" (17 U.S.C. 201(b)) and the college is considered the author and owner of the rights comprised in that copyright unless the parties have expressly agreed in a written instrument, signed by the employee and the college, that the employee is to have all or part of the ownership rights.
