Encumbered vs. unencumbered intellectual property | TTCO


Intellectual property is almost
everything you have created during your research. And sometimes you are working
with outside partners. That means that the IP that is being created might be
what we call encumbered, or it may also be unencumbered. That means that the
ownership of the IP may be shared or not. At any time that you have completed
a research participation agreement, or if you’re working with a sponsor or
industry partner, if you are on a work term, or even working within the
university, you might have limitations about the ownership of the IP that you
are creating. That means that the IP might be encumbered, opposed to
unencumbered which means that it’s owned exclusively by you. Whether you have
questions about intellectual property of a specific research project or if you
just want to learn more about intellectual property in general, contact
us. The TTCO is here to help.
