sorry coming in late on this…travelling again

As far as I know colleges try to assert full rights over any projects developed using their equipment or while one is enroled as a student…this is pretty common practice although it has been possible for some to negotiate joint exploitation rights afterwards. Usually tho the college will want a cut of any attempt to exploit..

Wasn’t this how and why Havok was formed? A uni research group and a PhD project…which as far as I know…and this could be urban myth…wasn’t submitted so they could keep full rights…

Unis are very bullish about this type of stuff…
