: : : Hi,
: : : I work for a UK University. I implemented an algorithm which I published (with co-authors) in Conference Proceedings in Jan 1998. This work has not been patented. The actual implementation of this algorithm thus belongs to the University.
: : : If I was to leave the University, re-implement the algorithm, from the published paper, probably in the same language, but quite differently structured, and without copying any of the code I did inside the University, am I risking any infringment?
: : : I assume a third-party could do it without problem, but that the University might claim that I derived the work from existing work I'd done for them. I believe that I'd be simply re-expessing a published research idea. Am I right?
: : : Kind Regards,
: Thanks for your informative answer. A followup question, not directly concerning the above, about joint copyrights. I am joint holder of several copyrights. Do I have the right to exploit the methods in the copyrights without the consent of the one or more of the other holders....?
: Kind Regards,
Apologies, by 'Copyright' I should have said 'Patent'...it's all too much!!
