Who owns the copyright to a university teacher’s recorded lecture? Can your employer replace you with lectures that you have recorded during the corona pandemic? What happens to your teaching material and your research data if you move to another university?
The issues regarding university employees’ new work situation, with increasing amounts of digitalisation, are many and complex. The corona pandemic meant that we took large steps into the world of digital remote learning very quickly. Furthermore, it has become increasingly common for higher education institutions to try to secure the usage rights to material that teachers and researchers produce at work, making intellectual property rights a more burning issue than ever.
