Do you own copyrights in your academic work?

Pila_justine Justine Pila, at the University of Oxford, provides a perspective from the U.K. on the question of "Who Owns the Intellectual Property Rights in Academic Work?".  As he explains it:

“In this Opinion piece I consider the ownership of intellectual property rights in university teaching and research against the backdrop of British university IP policies. Starting from the position of Lord Evershed that it is "just and commonsense" that academics own the copyright in their lectures, and by extension the copyright in their research, I consider the policy arguments for university claims of ownership in respect of such copyright and academic inventions.”

So, who owns the copyright in your lectures and publications?
