- About Deakin
Intellectual property (IP) represents the property of your mind or intellect: your knowledge, creations and discoveries; and can take many forms such as reports, publications, patents, confidential information or trade secrets, know-how and trademarks.

Intellectual property rights are protected worldwide through legislation and common law but these laws vary from country to country. Deakin University has policies and procedures which govern how the University will manage intellectual property.
The IP policy provides that students own all intellectual property in the works they create except in cases where there is a collaborative arrangement, or an agreement that provides to the contrary.
