Model Intellectual Property


I was wondering what Forio’s stance is on uploaded models as IP? I could not find any info on this in the documentation. Basically, I am excited about what Epicenter can do for our consulting service but would like to be sure that any uploaded files (on a private account) will be protected from copying and treated as the user’s IP.




Easy question to answer. All content uploaded is owned by the author of the simulation.

You can find more details in the Terms of Service. (link is at the bottom of the Epicenter page at ). There’s a section Intellectual Property Rights which reads (in part)

User Content Uploaded to the Service: You are solely responsible for the code, Applications, content and other materials you upload through the Service or share with other users or recipients (collectively, “User Content”). Forio makes no claim of ownership or control over your User Content.
