- lectures delivered by the employee;
- printed works (books, articles and similar material) written by the employee, except for editorial work that is part of the employee's assigned duties;
- artistic works (paintings, sculptures, musical compositions and the like) created by the employee;
- computer programs developed by the employee, except for work that is part of the employee's assigned administrative duties;
- recorded works (films, videotapes, audio recordings, etc.) created by the employee, except for work that is part of an employee's assigned duties.
An employee is entitled to receive any and all royalties on copyrighted works of which the employee is the exclusive owner. Royalties on copyrighted works that are produced as part of an employee's assigned duties shall be shared half and half between the employee and the Employer, or by such other arrangements as the Association may approve on behalf of the employee.
Any work produced by an employee and copyrighted by the Employer shall be withdrawn from educational or public use at the request of the employee if the employee can demonstrate that the content is in error or outdated, that the quality is unjustifiably poor, or that the work reflects badly on the employee's reputation. No copyrighted work produced by an employee shall be used by the Employer in a manner not approved by the employee.
