    Recognizing that instruction delivered online has unique “academic freedom” concerns, this program seeks to explore who should own online course content, particularly in fully asynchronous courses. First, we will review the current legal standard from a neutral perspective to understand the evolving trends. Next, we will explore the legal and non-legal arguments in favor of faculty retaining authorship rights. Finally, we will review the arguments supporting university ownership. With the remaining time, we will invite attendees to explore a related issue of “equality,” that is to say, who in a law school is typically tasked with creating online content?
