- For university employees and students the ownership of copyrights depends on your status at the time the work was made.
- EHRA employees such as faculty will own copyrights in the works that they create unless they are notified in advance that the university will claim the works. Similarly, in most cases students will own the copyrights for works that they make in performance of their studies. In both of these cases the creators will be deemed to have given the university a royalty-free license to copy and/or perform the copyrighted work in the performance of the university’s research and teaching activities.
- Works made by SHRA employees (i.e., employees who are subject to North Carolina’s State Personnel Act) are considered to be “works for hire” and are owned by the university.
