The Policy

ADUC may enter into an agreement with the originator, another person, or an outside organization concerning intellectual property’s commercialization. ADUC may also enter into an agreement with the originator for intellectual property to be sold or for a license agreement to be entered into. In such cases, ADUC will ensure that the originator is consulted at all stages.


ADUC owns or partly owns the intellectual property. Any agreement concerning the distribution of revenue will be agreed upon between the parties case by case. This applies to the copyright of original course and teaching materials published by ADUC for use in the award and continuing education programs offered by ADUC and other intellectual property owned by ADUC and its partnerships should decide as soon as possible whether there is an interest in pursuing a patent or registration concerning intellectual property owned by ADUC.
