Technology & Intellectual Property
All students, faculty, staff, and others participating in Rensselaer programs are subject to the provisions, obligations, and responsibilities set forth in the Intellectual Property Policy of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute as it may be amended from time to time. This policy is binding on all members of the Rensselaer community, whether or not an individual has signed a separate intellectual property agreement with Rensselaer or any third party. This policy covers the ownership, distribution, and commercial development of intellectual property, whether or not such intellectual property is patentable, copyrightable, subject to trademark registration, or some other means of formal protection. Copies of this policy are available in all Deans’ offices, as well as the offices of the Provost and Vice President for Research.
