RE: Delegation of Authority - Copyright Ownership

The University of California Policy on Copyright Ownership, dated August 19, 1992, sets forth Chancellors’ authority for copyrighted works under their respective jurisdictions. I am designating the Chief Innovation Officer and Executive Director of Applied Innovation, the Senior Director, Invention Transfer Group, and the Associate Director, Intellectual Property Administration as the central resources for UCI faculty and staff to consult about application of the Policy.

The Chief Innovation Officer and Executive Director of Applied Innovation, the Senior Director, Invention Transfer Group, and the Associate Director, Intellectual Property Administration are delegated the authority to:

  1. Issue guidelines, implementing procedures, and supplementary campus policies consistent with University Copyright Policy.
  2. Identify campus facilities or projects as having special copyright assignment obligations and issue guidelines and implementing procedures regarding assignment of copyright in works produced using such facilities or projects.
  3. Register copyrights, accept copyrights from third parties, and sell, assign, or grant licenses in the name of The Regents for any rights to copyrights.
  4. Release University ownership rights to copyrighted works which are in the name of The Regents of the University of California pursuant to Section III of the University Copyright Policy.

Any redelegation or reassignment of these authorities shall be in writing, with copies to me and the list below, and shall be no less restrictive than this delegation and assignment.

This letter supersedes IDA 403, dated April 6, 2005,regarding copyright ownership.
