Intellectual Property Policies for a New Learning Environment
The second monograph from the Pew Symposia on Learning and Technology, Who Owns On-Line Courses and Course Materials: Intellectual Property Policies for a New Learning Environment, is now available (including a downloadable PDF version)
The monograph captures the results of an invitational symposium on this topic held on February 17-18, 2000, in Miami, Florida. Participants included recognized experts on the topic of intellectual property; those who are actively engaged in developing and implementing on-line programs and who are grappling with intellectual property issues on a daily basis; people who approach the issue from a corporate perspective and who collaborate with both individuals and institutions; and noted higher education thinkers on the topic of technology-mediated programs. The goal was to give institutions some concrete advice about what their approaches to intellectual property policy should be and why.
