Creating and distributing knowledge are the fundamental missions of North Dakota State University, and this creative environment encourages intellectual property, or IP.


Intellectual property refers to the various legal entitlements that go along with certain ideas, information, or other intangibles. Protected by law, IP may take the form of copyrights, trademarks, or patents. Ownership of intellectual property is generally held by its authors, researchers, creators, or innovators, except under the special circumstances described in Section 190 of the NDSU Policy Manual.
