John W. Boushka - High Production Publishing –
Simplified Intellectual Property Agreement
agree to comply with all rules concerning confidentiality of information that
would normally be required in a commercial or government workplace, including
school systems. Confidential information includes but is not limited to
financial, medical, job or academic performance, or personal information about
students, employees or any other stakeholders. It would also include trade
secrets as normally understood.
agree to conduct myself on school or employer’s premises according to the
established rules of conduct and to present classroom materials in accordance
with school district or employer’s instructions and policies.
employer ______________ understands that I have authored books and supporting
websites with my own time and resources and that I retain all normal
intellectual property rights to these items. This would include the employer’s
payment for the materials through normal commercial channels when the employer
wishes to use them.
employer also understands that stakeholders may be able to locate me or my
work (at home or at school or work when unsupervised) through search engines
on the World Wide Web. It is conceivable, although unlikely and very rare
occurrence, that a stakeholder could read a limited selection from my work and
feel distracted if he or she did not attempt to place the selection in the
larger context of the work. All of my work is posted in good faith as part of
the body of information available to discuss political, social and technical
issues of our civilization today objectively.
employer understands that I have a business relationship with iUniverse, which
publishers two of the books, and that I have an assumed name, High
which carries the other book. (As of 07/31/2005 this was no longer used.) I have registered this name with Arlington
County and it was previously registered in Minnesota. (Attachments may be
provided as necessary.)
assert that I am able to carry out the duties of the position of substitute
teacher or individual contributor with objectivity and fairness to all
students, customers, employees, or other stakeholders.
