NMU Intellectual Property Policy

For example, these may take the form of a journal publication, a laboratory manual, a text, a machine, an invention, a computer program, a work of art, music, a theatrical work, course materials, a poem, a photograph, a chemical process, a movie, a documentary, a Web site or a recruitment view book. Intellectual property is given great weight within higher education because intellectual property is the foundation of our collective and individual economic security.
