Creative Works Symposium at UNH

As a UNH graduate student, I have been interning with UNHInnovation (UNHI) to learn more about copyright law and the future of intellectual property.

The goal of this project is to better inform faculty and students about the impact of intellectual property rights on universities and to answer questions faculty or students may have in regards to intellectual property, including copyright and trademark laws.
