Q. Who owns my dataset?

University researchers and students retain intellectual property rights where they arise, or the right to apply for such rights, from the results of activities undertaken by University staff in the course of their employment by the University and by students in the course of their study at the University in accordance with Chapter XIII of the University’s Statutes and Ordinances on Finance and Property, subsection Intellectual Property Rights - this also includes datasets.

In other words, unless the contract with your funder (or your collaborators) states otherwise, if you are the creator of your dataset, you will be the primary owner of the intellectual property rights.
