Copyright policy

The Lantern values the creative and intellectual contributions of the student staff. It is imperative that the Lantern maintain ownership of all intellectual property to fulfill its mission.

As a condition of participating in the Lantern, all students are required to assign to the Lantern all rights to intellectual property relating to “Lantern Materials.” The term “Lantern Materials” means all articles, stories, documents, text, photographs, images, designs, graphics, maps, software, computer code, data and other information or materials in any tangible medium of expression that is: (A) created by a student for the Lantern; (B) created with the use of Lantern equipment or resources; or (C) submitted to the Lantern for publication, regardless of whether the materials are actually published.

This means that all Lantern materials shall be solely owned and controlled by the Lantern and that the student may not submit Lantern materials to any other medium without the prior written consent of the Lantern.  In return, the Lantern grants to the student a non-exclusive license to use Lantern materials created by the student for any academic or educational purpose. This means that while the Lantern continues to own all Lantern materials, the student is permitted to use Lantern materials that he or she creates for coursework, etc. without the prior consent of the Lantern. The student may subsequently request permission from the Lantern to have the property reproduced in other media.

In the event that any Lantern material generates revenue of $100 or more unrelated to the publication of the Lantern, the student is entitled to royalties in the amount of not less than 67 percent of the revenue for each dollar beyond $100. The Lantern will make all reasonable efforts to locate the student who created the material. When the Lantern cannot locate the student, the Lantern will retain 100 percent of such revenue.
