We are regularly reminded that acronyms and terms that are used at UNH and more specifically within UNHInnovation (UNHI) and in other technology transfer offices are not everyday phrases. Thus, the need arose for a continued discussion of these terms, as seen in UNHI’s December 10, 2013 blog post. The focus of this posting is to again look at some more general terms that are regularly used and more specifically, why they are used.
In collaboration with the Office for Research Partnerships and Commercialization and the UNH Music Department, we would like to welcome Peter McGovern and Dr. Catherine McGovern, experts on copyright, entertainment, and music law.
The McGoverns will be conducting a special presentation for students and faculty on Tuesday, September 25, 2012, from 12:40 – 2:00pm in Bratton Hall, M-135. The general subject of this presentation will be copyright issues and laws as they relate to arts in general and to music in particular.
Creative Works is a sometimes-overlooked area at educational institutions with strong technology-based research programs. Generally, a creative work is one that results in a piece of artwork, literature, music, curriculum, evaluation tool, or software being developed. Faculty, staff, and students at UNH are regularly developing Creative Works. ORPC has placed a new focus on this area of scholarship and looks at the best way to protect, manage, and deliver innovative Creative Works to the public.
