    1. Basic Intellectual Property Policy as stated in the Board of Regents of The University of Texas System, Regents' Rules and Regulations, Rule 90101.
    1. “Significant Use of University Resources”: The ABOR IP Policy specifically defines what constitutes “significant use of University resources.” Although the definition is detailed, it is logical—it does not cover simple use of a University-provided laptop or office space, for example, but generally does cover what is done on University time or in furtherance of University-related activities, such as research.

      From Board of Regents IP Policy: "“Significant Use of Board or University Resources” includes but is not limited to any of the following: use of research funding; use of funding allocated for asynchronous or distance learning programs; use of university-paid time within the employment period other than during sabbaticals or consulting as permitted under Board and university policies or except in the creation of scholarly works; assistance of support staff; use of telecommunication services beyond ordinary telephone services; use of university central computing resources; use of instructional design or media production services; access to and use of research equipment and facilities, or production facilities. The Board does not construe the use of office space, library resources, personal workstations, or personal computers as constituting significant use of university resources."

    2. This University of Arizona Intellectual Property Policy (the “Policy”) explains, supplements, and implements the Arizona Board of Regents (ABOR) Intellectual Property Policy (6-908) for the University of Arizona (University).
    1. For purposes of this policy, “work made for hire” should be as defined by the American Association of University Professors (AAUP) Statement on Copyright.1 “Substantial use” means that the creator receives more than normal support for the project or receives time and/or resources specifically dedicated to the project.

      Footnote: The University of Kansas, Lawrence, will be guided specifically by that portion of the AAUP 1999 Statement on Copyright (AAUP Policy Documents & Reports, Tenth Edition, p.215, lines 15-21), that states, “Works created as a specific requirement of employment or as an assigned institutional duty that may, for example, be included in a written job description or an employment agreement, may be fairly deemed works made for hire. Even absent such prior written specification, ownership will vest in the college or university in those cases in which it provides the specific authorization or supervision for the preparation of the work. Examples are reports prepared by a dean or by the chair or members of a faculty committee, or college promotional brochures prepared by a director of admissions.”
