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. I don’t know how this is legally invoked, but i know it has substance.[/quote:391cd74830]

Wouldn’t there be some form of onus on the college to properly highlight and inform the students of this practise?

And if they didn’t disclose or failed to inform their ‘customers’ (I’m not strictly talking about colleges at this point, I’m referring to services like Banks etc. in general) then surely, they (the college/service provider) haven’t a leg to stand on?

Just dropped Mary Hanafin an email in the Dept. of Edu, so I’ll let ya’s know what she has to say regarding the matter (if she replies…)
