Ownership is tied to authorship:
- Identify all authors
- Identify all copyrightable works
A starting point in any project is to fully assess what is copyrightable
in the work and who created those works. In many cases, there may
be many copyrights in a work.
Each of the elements of a project may be eligible for copyright,
as well as the compilation of the elements. Depending on how the
project contributions are structured, there may be many owners of
a single work, many owners of separate works or a consolidated owner
of the collective work.
If you have questions about how to identify the copyright assets
in your work, contact UW TechTransfer.
