IP3 Systems: Does a University own all the IP of their employees

NSW Society for Computers and the Law has a comprehensive analysis of the Victorian Supreme Court decision in the IP3 Systems case.

In this case, the work of the two professors of the VUT (Victorian University of Technology) were held to be property of the University although they were hired not for "inventing", but for "research". Critically, the court held that the higher their positions, the wider the scope of their activities fell within the terms of their employment.
