Copyright Protection of Scientific Research Data

  • Deborah W. Denno


Scientific research in the United States has grown substantially in recent years (Andrews, 1989; Brooks, 1988; Cooper, 1980; Dukarich, 1989; Eisenberg, 1987; Korn, 1987; Reichman, 1989). Much commentary has addressed the ownership and control of such research as intellectual property under the patent laws (Burk, 1989; Eisenberg, 1987; Korn, 1987; Rosenfeld, 1988) or as agency records (Walterscheid, 1989) and trade secrets (Nelkin, 1984) under the Freedom of Information Act (1988). A parallel but scarcely examined issue, however, concerns those proprietary rights that exist under copyright (Bovard, 1954; Burk, 1989; Cecil & Griffin, 1985; R. Jones, 1987), that area of intellectual property law that regulates the use and flow of information and its by-products (Office of Technology Assessment, 1986).
