Copyright and Intellectual Property

How can the History Subject Centre help you with Intelletual Property issues?

Intellectual Property (IP) allows people to own their creativity and innovation in the same way that they can own physical property. Owning some IP gives rise to IP Rights (IPR) which is usually a monopoly right enabling the owner of the IP to control and be rewarded for its use. Some IP protection such as copyright arises automatically without any registration as soon as it has been created. Recently, there has been a focus on creating licenses for teaching materials to allow for their use beyond the home institution as well as protecting the rights of the creator.
