Work for definition

Work for hire” is a legal term defined in the Copyright Act as “a work prepared by an employee within the scope of his or her employment.” This definition includes works prepared by employees in satisfaction of sponsored agreements between the District and outside agencies. Certain commissioned works also are works for hire if the parties so agree in writing. The employer (i.e., the District) by law is the “author,” and hence the owner, of works for hire for copyright purposes. Works for hire subject to this principle include works that are developed, in whole or in part, by District employees. For example, under Section 11.1305 of this policy, significant use of staff or student employee programmers or District film production personnel will typically result in District ownership of the copyright in the resulting work. Where a work is jointly developed by District faculty or staff or student employees and a non-District third party, the copyright in the resulting work typically will be jointly owned by the District and the third party. In such instances, both the District and the other party would have non-exclusive rights to exploit the work, subject to the duty to account to each other. Whether the District claims ownership of a work will be determined in accordance with the provisions of this policy, and not solely based upon whether the work constitutes a work-for-hire under the copyright law. For example, copyright in pedagogical, scholarly or artistic works to which the District disclaims ownership under this policy shall be held by the creators regardless of whether the work constitutes a work-for-hire under copyright law. District ownership in a work for hire may be relinquished only by an official of the District authorized to do so by the Governing Board.
Work for hire” is defined in Section 9.02(A) of this Article.)
