In November, 2018, the University approved a new Intellectual Property Policy covering the innovations developed here at Drexel that are protected by patents and copyrights. Approval of this policy was the culmination of a long-term effort by the administration, Faculty Senate and academic leaders of the Colleges and Schools to modernize our policies in light of changes to federal law, policies and best practices. This new policy replaces the following policies, Patent, Copyright and Courses Delivered Over the Internet, which have been consolidated and updated into one policy. Further, the new policy harmonizes Drexel’s approach to intellectual property, replacing three older policies that conflicted with governing law as well as each other.
