MetadataShow full item record
New information and communication technologies not only open new opportunities for higher education institutions to access, create and deliver knowledge but also bring new challenges to new as well as old practices. While innovative technological applications are becoming commonplace, relations of intellectual property concerned with the creation, authorisation and usage of scholarly works are far from clear in an institution of higher education. Created for educational purposes such scholarly works usually include not only printed books and manuscripts of notes but also digital conversations of images, multimedia composite works, broadcast, telecast, audio-cassettes, video-cassettes and other tangible media provided in the forms of teaching modules and packages. Such works are more often created not by a single professor, rather by a team of experts. They often do not only compile the materials, but also become publishers. A team involves experts from several institutions rather than from a single one. Their work is often funded financially and supported otherwise by several institutions, too. In an institution of higher education, the situation obviously requires a transparent policy of intellectual property if academic community truly cares not only about incentives for scientific creativity and maintenance of wide access to knowledge but also about just institutional relations. This article discusses philosophical, legal as well as institutional issues on intellectual property policy formation and implementation. Particular attention is drawn to allocation and exercise of copyrights, the conditions of transparent process concerning authorisation of scholarly works created for educational purposes in a contemporary Lithuanian university. The discussion aims at revealing trustworthy principles as regards not only practical processes of authorisation of scholarly works but also intellectual property policy formation and implementation.
