Intellectual Property Under Federal Government Contracts: Protecting Your Technology

Washington, DC
May 16, 2012

Nothing strikes at the core of future profitability (and job security) than the compromise of your company's intellectual property.  Protection of that intellectual property, however, in both commercial and noncommercial item sales to the U.S. Government is becoming increasingly difficult as a result of recent legislative, regulatory, and, in the case of some agencies, unwritten policy changes.  Please join our Partner Louis Victorino in (1) a review of contractor and government rights in data and patents created or used in the performance of government contracts, including the special impact of increasingly used "red flag" data rights clauses, (2) an identification of critical steps necessary to protect intellectual property rights under government contracts, and (3) a discussion of potential strategies to mitigate the recent policy changes being implemented by the government.
