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…[/quote:32433e7953]

Even as an undergrad student?

while one is enroled as a student…[/quote:32433e7953]

All projects done while one is enroled? Not just projects submitted as coursework?

That really doesn’t sound right to me.
afaik, employers don’t own the work performed by an employee outside their working hours unless there is an explicit contract.

I find it hard to believe a college could own all work done during one’s enrollment, without any sort of a contract.

I really doubt that would work legally, without even considering the ethical dimension, which would be a big deal considering students are not even informed about this.
