Abstract

Persons employed in teaching (primary, secondary or tertiary) have generally enjoyed ownership of their copyrightable expressions even when created as part of job duties. This is the teacher or academic exception to the usual industrial practice and legal rule that copyrightable expressions created as part of job duties belong to the employer. This paper will explore the jurisprudential sources for the academic exception, the public policy justification for it, the present practice of the exception and the challenges to the exception said to arise because of on-line learning media. The paper concludes that the policy reasons supporting the academic exception should remain unchanged by the advent of new learning media.
