I didn’t sign anything either. However, once you agree to study at a university, you abide by the rule of the university. One of those rules is the IP rule.[/quote:5295d77d57]

Yeah, but breaking a college “rule” doesn’t always mean you’re breaking the law. So if a college “rule” states that anything you create is theirs, yet you haven’t signed anything legally binding to that effect, then they haven’t a legal leg to stand on should you use you’re work outside college. They could, presumably, use the colleges internal disciplinary procedures should you still be attending the college at that stage.

Thats my take on it anyway, which could be bollox because I’m not a legal type person. ;) Bottom line is to read over the document you signed(if you even signed a document) and see if it mentions anything about IP rights.
