When building the upgraded version of The Access Platform, we spoke to a very large number of customers, student Ambassadors and prospective students.
We learned that our customers wanted to own the content their representatives were creating and that in general, Ambassadors were happy and expected to grant IP Assignment for the work they were doing.
Universities often use IP Assignment for work with students where content is being created. This can be difficult as legal contracts need to be created and signatures collected from all Ambassadors.
The Access Platform has IP Assignment from the Ambassador to the institution they represent built into the service Terms and Conditions. Student Ambassadors are unable to successfully create an account without giving their explicit consent first.
As a result, customer institutions do not have to create additional contracts in order to use The Access Platform with their Ambassadors.
If you have any further questions about IP Assignment on The Access Platform, please get in touch.
