Title : CiTR Repository: entry of info about IP, Ownership, Conditions
of Use of assets
Node_Type : Production
Format : HTML
Address : http://repository:13531/MORE/documentation/IP_in_guide.html
Keywords : intellectual
Abstract : The guidelines in this guide are designed to satisfy the
1.Facilitate informed re-use decisions regarding
ownership and conditions of use -
A user discovers an item they propose to use/re-use.
What information should be included in the
meta-data so the user, their project manager /
solution team manager and CiTR management can
make an informed decision about the proposed re-use, so:
- we don't accidentally breach copyright,
confidentiality, contracts, licence agreements,
- we don't accidentally give away our IP (or
otherwise jeopardise its future use), e.g., by
using something in a project when the project's
contract says all IP used will belong to the
customer, or similar.
- we meet contractual requirements arising both
from the original source of the re-use item
and from its re-use in the new situation.
2.Build up a chain of information / history as an item of
IP evolves (possibly spanning several
entries in the repository).
