Intellectual Property: Employees
During the course of your work at NYIT, you may have the opportunity to create what is legally known as intellectual property. This is a general term applied to many tangible and intangible categories that include but are not limited to inventions, trade secrets, patents, literary and artistic works, such as books, articles, poetry, paintings, photographs and music, and computer software. Intellectual property may also include trademarks, brand names, logos, designs, or other symbols that distinguish products and services. Any intellectual property you create as part of your work here is the property of NYIT, and is deemed a work made for hire, with all legal interests vesting in NYIT, unless otherwise determined by a separate written agreement between you and NYIT or as provided in a collective bargaining agreement.
