  • Old Dominion University IP policies — Faculty is obliged to assign ownership on demand / Abysmally draconian
  • Assignment of Ownership Agreements If the University claims an interest in the intellectual property, the creator has an obligation to assign his/her ownership rights over to the University for subsequent assignment by the University to the Old Dominion University Research Foundation that serves as the University’s intellectual property management agency.
