    be used to distinguish among the many sources of University support project sponsorship and other acquired resources stemming from external relationships so that the resources can be channeled to and administered by the appropriate organizational unit Gift or Donation Generally a voluntary irrevocable transfer of property by a donor to a charitable non profit organization for example a university recipient The property must be delivered to and accepted by the recipient The transfer must not have been made for consideration that is nothing of beneficial value returns to the donor save the joy of giving and any tax advantage gained Furthermore a gift involves no other contractual requirements written or oral The term gift is synonymous with donation or charitable contribution although there are technical income tax requirements for a gift to be a deductible charitable contribution Some gifts may be designated for a particular purpose or unique activities of the recipient and if accepted these become restrictions on how the gift may be used A gift may be made based upon a solicitation or proposal in which the charitable organization describes how the gift funds would be utilized Corporate and private foundation gifts are commonly called grants Funding of this type will be solicited accepted and overseen by University Advancement Foundation gift accounts are established when funds received from outside sources are designated for unrestricted use and are free of the constraints or obligations of sponsored projects as described above Gifts will usually not require financial or technical reporting by the University or Foundation User Licensing or Registration Fees Fees charged to a person or organization in exchange for participation in a specialized educational activity offered by the University through Cal Poly Continuing Education Similarly fees are charged for the use of University facilities and services for such educational activities including courses workshops and conferences sponsored by non University agents Funding of this type is typically handled by Cal Poly Continuing Education which includes Conference Services Grant An appropriate formal written agreement between a public agency commercial entity or private foundation grantor and a recipient organization grantee establishing a relationship that transfers to the grantee funds property or services to accomplish a public purpose without substantial involvement of the grantor during performance of the contemplated grant activity but with the expectation of results or benefits of some kind for the sponsor A grant involves an obligation between the parties In contrast a gift does not although a gift recipient is legally obligated to follow gift restrictions and in the case of non cash gifts a formal deed document may be used to substantiate the nature and extent of the gift A grant is usually preceded by a formal proposal to the grantor A negotiation process follows and the grant award is usually made when a written instrument has been executed For smaller amounts the agreement may simply be an award letter from the grantor to the grantee referencing the proposal any negotiated features at variance with the proposal and

    of matching is justified by the benefit to the institution and the fit with college and University strategic planning objectives The college department has made a commitment to provide at least one half of the required match If the Office of Academic Affairs has agreed to participate in the match and the grant proposal has been reviewed and signed by that office prior to submission The Office of Academic Affairs will only provide support in exceptional cases in which an award is expected to have a major University wide impact NOTE If the Provost s Office indicates on the PAF that its commitment will be confirmed at some time in the future the colleges will be responsible for obtaining that confirmation OR will assume responsibility for the entire matching commitment if the proposal is successful and an award is made Grants for Which Institutional Match is Desirable The colleges departments may provide matching support for grants even though the match is not required Usually this will occur when all the following conditions are met The grant is from an agency sponsor that requires peer review of grant proposals The institutional match increases the chance of the award being made The

Copyright Framework This section deals with the ownership of copyrightable intellectual property created by faculty staff and students in separate sections Faculty creations are governed by section II A 2 staff creations are governed by section II A 3 and student creations are governed by section II A 4 Faculty Creations Faculty own the copyright resulting from scholarly and creative publications they develop The University s equity interest is determined by the circumstances listed below If the University provides extraordinary resources toward the creation of copyrightable property the faculty will own the copyright but the University will be entitled to an equity interest in the profits derived from the commercialization of the intellectual property according to the provisions in section II D If the University initiates a creative project solicits voluntary faculty participation in the project and provides funding for the project possibly including compensation release time for the faculty member the University will own the intellectual property rights developed through the project unless the University agrees to share ownership A written document signed by the faculty member prior to initiation of the project will be executed to acknowledge the University s ownership or sharing arrangement and the faculty member s commitment to cooperate with the University at University expense to protect and commercialize the intellectual property Should the parties agree the University may opt to share with the faculty involved any profits that result from the intellectual property created on the project Such agreement and the details of profit sharing arrangements shall be recorded in a written document signed by both parties which shall supersede this policy to the extent that any provisions conflict If the University Corporation and an outside sponsor enter into an agreement to carry out research or other creative activity involving faculty the faculty who participate in the project shall comply with the conditions of the agreement regarding ownership protection and licensing of intellectual property developed under the agreement and may be required to agree in writing that they will so comply Copyright terms of such agreements even when they deviate from the provisions of this policy will be negotiated with the sponsor by the Dean of Research and Graduate Programs with the consent of the faculty involved and the appropriate Dean s Staff Creations The University owns the copyright to works created by University staff in the course

conflict Student Creations Students will normally own the copyright to the scholarly and creative publications they develop including works fulfilling course requirements term papers and projects Senior Projects and Masters Theses Projects Students retain copyright ownership as long as they are not paid for the work that results in the creation and do not receive extraordinary University resources in support of the work Nonetheless by enrolling at the University the student grants the University a nonexclusive royalty free license to mark on modify publicize and retain the work as may be required by the faculty department or the University The University is not entitled to an equity share in any ownership profits except in the circumstances covered below When the student is employed by the University and the creation falls within the scope of that employment either the University or the faculty member when the student is hired specifically to work on a faculty project owns the copyright according to the same standards that apply to staff creations under sections II A 3 above or faculty creations under Section II A 2 If the student receives extraordinary University resources that further the creation or development of the creative work then the student owns the copyright but the University retains an equity interest in the creation using the same standards that govern faculty creations under section II A 2 b If the student works on a sponsored project or a special intellectual property agreement and the creation falls within the scope of that work then the student is bound by the written agreements governing the allocation of copyright ownership When the student is employed by an outside entity not the University or Corporation and the creation falls within the scope of that employment then the student normally will be bound by a contract with the outside entity including any provisions for copyright ownership and the University will have no rights to the intellectual property developed Patents Framework This section deals with the ownership of patentable intellectual property created by faculty staff and students in separate sections Faculty inventions are governed by section II B 2 staff inventions are governed by section II B 3 and student inventions are governed by section II B 4 Faculty Inventions Faculty own the intellectual property resulting from their scholarly activity The University s equity interest is determined by the circumstances listed below If the University provides extraordinary resources to the creation of intellectual property then the faculty will own the intellectual property rights but the University will be entitled to an equity interest in the profits derived from the commercialization of the

that any provisions conflict Staff Inventions The University shall own all intellectual property rights in works created by University staff in the course and scope of their employment The University has no equity interest in any proceeds derived from intellectual property that is created by staff without the use of University resources and that is developed outside the course and scope of employment Staff persons are advised to notify the Dean of Research about their external activities if they have concerns that the University might claim ownership interests in any intellectual property that results from those activities The University or Corporation may employ or engage individuals under specific contractual terms that allocate intellectual property rights between the parties in a different manner than specified above There may be occasions when University staff also serve as faculty for the University Under these circumstances written agreements should be entered into in advance of undertaking any research or creative activity to clarify whether the individual is acting in their staff or faculty capacity in carrying out the activity Unresolved questions on ownership may be directed to the Intellectual Property Rights Committee and a recommendation regarding ownership rights will be made to the President Such agreement s shall supersede this policy to the extent that any provisions conflict Student Inventions Students enrolled at the University may create valuable intellectual property while fulfilling course requirements in conjunction with University employment and or through the use of University resources The ownership interests in such intellectual property depend on the particular circumstances surrounding the creation In particular students must be careful to differentiate their own creative contributions from those of their faculty instructors and mentors The following parameters apply The student is not paid for the work that results in the creation and does not receive significant University resources in support of the work In these circumstances the student owns the intellectual property interests in the creation This is true even if the intellectual property is created to fulfill course requirements or other academic requirements Nonetheless by enrolling at the University the student grants the University a nonexclusive royalty free license to mark on modify publicize and retain the work as may be required by the faculty department or the University The University is not entitled to an equity share in any ownership profits except in the circumstances covered below The student is employed by the University Corporation and the creation falls within the scope of employment In these circumstances either the University or the supervising faculty owns the intellectual property according to the same standards that apply to staff creations under sections II B 3 or faculty creations under Section II B 2 The student receives extraordinary University resources that further the creation or development of the intellectual property In these circumstances the student owns the intellectual property but the University retains an equity interest using the same standards that govern faculty creations under section II B 2 b d If the student works on a sponsored project or under a special intellectual property agreement and the creation falls within the scope of that work then the student is bound by the written agreements governing the allocation of intellectual property rights The student is employed by an outside entity not the University or Corporation and the creation falls within the scope of that employment Under these circumstances the student normally will be bound by a contract with the outside entity including provisions intended to protect and allocate intellectual property rights and the University will have no rights to the intellectual property developed University resources may not be used unless a prior special intellectual property agreement is in place see d above Software The proprietary protection available for software is unique in that both copyright and patent are available Copyright protection may cover the expression of the software ideas in a tangible medium while patent protection may cover algorithmic inventions Due to this dual approach software should first be considered under the patent provisions of this policy at II B and is therefore subject to disclosure of any underlying algorithms that appear to have commercial value After consideration of patent protection for valuable software algorithms copyright at II A should be considered as additional or alternative protection In accordance with section I C 1 and absent a specific agreement to the contrary the University favors the copyright and publication of source code as well as its underlying object code This is in contrast with the common commercial practice that utilizes trade secrecy for source code in order to prevent the dissemination and discussion of any innovative ideas it reveals As with the underlying algorithms that if patented must be published so that they may be studied and discussed by other researchers the University believes that source code should be published in a form that is amenable to research and will promote scientific progress The object code is similarly subject to copyright University Equity Interests Even when the University does not own intellectual property under this policy if the University provides extraordinary resources to the creation of intellectual properties it enjoys an equity interest in the net proceeds derived from those properties The University s equity interest is determined by the extent of use and the value of these extraordinary resources The amount of the University s equity interest in a particular intellectual property will be agreed upon before pursuing protection commercialization In no case will the University s share be greater than 50 The amount that an individual creator inventor must render to the University in recognition of its equity interests is determined as follows When the amount of net proceeds received from an intellectual property subject to University equity interest is equal to or less than 50 000 in a fiscal year then the University is not entitled to any portion of the net income derived from that intellectual property When the amount of net proceeds received from an intellectual property subject to University equity interest is greater than 50 000 in a fiscal year the net proceeds in excess of 50 000 will be allocated between the University and the creator s inventor s based on the previously determined equity interest agreement ADMINISTRATIVE PROCEDURES The University University Administration The University President is responsible for policy matters relating to intellectual property and affecting the University s relations with inventors and creators public agencies private research sponsors industry and the public The Office of the Provost through the Dean of Research and Graduate Programs and in coordination with the Cal Poly Corporation shall implement and administer this policy including negotiation of intellectual property terms in agreements with sponsors evaluation of patentability or other forms of intellectual property protection filing for patents negotiation of use rights and the pursuit of infringement actions Intellectual Property Review Committee The University President shall appoint an Intellectual Property Review Committee The Committee shall be composed of eleven members 8 of whom shall be members of the faculty without administrative appointments and nominated by the Academic Senate These 8 appointees shall represent each college as well as Professional Consultative Services The other three members shall include the Chair of the Academic Senate Research Committee the Dean of Research and Graduate Programs and a student representative appointed annually by the ASI President A faculty member shall chair the Committee Faculty appointees shall serve three year staggered terms The Committee shall review and monitor University activities on matters relating to the administration of this policy The Committee shall be consulted in advance concerning any material changes to the policy and shall participate fully in the future development of the policy The Committee shall make recommendations for the allocation of the University s net proceeds from intellectual property When necessary the Committee shall review invention disclosures and other information to evaluate the University s contribution to the development of particular intellectual properties In many cases the inventor creator will reach an agreement with the University concerning ownership rights and equity interest without the need for review by the Committee In making its assessment the Committee will rely on information provided by both the inventor creator and the University Committee deliberations will be in closed session to protect proprietary information Similarly committee records will be kept confidential and committee members will be bound to maintain confidentiality The purpose of the review will be to help the parties reach agreement within the framework of this policy In the event of any disagreement among interested parties concerning interpretation or application of this policy the Committee will serve as the appellate body advisory to the University President In cases where the Committee is unable to resolve such disagreements to the satisfaction of the interested parties then it shall submit a written recommendation for resolution of the dispute to the University President for a final administrative decision The final resolution of any disagreement concerning the application or interpretation of this policy will be governed by applicable law and collective bargaining agreements At the beginning of each academic year the Corporation will provide to the Dean of Research and Graduate Programs a summary statement of income and expenses from intellectual property in which the University has an interest if any and an accounting of income and disbursements of the Commercialization Fund and the Research Fund see IV B The Dean will submit this information to the Intellectual Property Review Committee in a written report of all the activities in which that Office has been involved in the preceding year University Assistance The protection and commercialization of intellectual property requires close attention to relevant laws For example for a patentable invention one must carefully and properly document all activities involved in developing the invention from
