All inventions made by faculty members using University facilities shall belong to the State University and should be voluntarily disclosed. The inventor shall make application for patents and assign such applications or any patents as directed by the State University. [The inventor works with the Research Foundation of SUNY, which submits the patent application.] The University will make provision entitling the inventor to a share in any proceeds from the management and licensing of such invention. Inventions made on an individual’s own time and without the use of University facilities shall belong to the individual. Generally, faculty members shall retain all rights to copyright and publish written works produced by them. However, where persons are employed or directed to produce specific work subject to copyright, the University shall have the right to publish such work without copyright or to copyright it in its own name.
