UWA not that appealing

The Australian Higher Education Supplement has seemed a little short on news lately. But today they reported that the judgement of the appeal by UWA v Gray has been released.

The HES said:
"In a joint judgment, the court refused to read an implied duty to invent into Dr Gray's contract, stressing the distinct public role of universities, the fact that academics were not only employees but members of their university, and the freedom of researchers to choose the direction of their projects as well as to share and disseminate their results."
Like many others, I'll read it before commenting further. Unlike the HES, I have that privilege.
