OER IPR Support Project
A project funded by the Higher Education Academy and JISC, and delivered by JISC Legal, Web2Rights and Creative Commons UK, to give OER Phase 2 projects support and guidance relating to intellectual property rights, and other legal issues.
JISC Legal have issued a new guidance paper in March 2011 as part of this project:
Strategic Managment of IPR for OER in UK HE addresses some of the background issues regarding management of intellectual property rights (IPR) in UK universities. In particular, this guidance aims to assist institutions by prompting strategic decisions that may need to be taken in relation to the management of intellectual property, and to inform those decisions. The full paper is available here: http://www.jisclegal.ac.uk/ManageContent/ViewDetail/tabid/243/ID/1926/Strategic-Management-of-IPR-for-OER-in-UK-HE.aspx.
