Government Contract Intellectual Property

The Government Contract Intellectual Property Workshop is a comprehensive course designed for lawyers and contracting professionals, whether they represent government contractors, educational institutions, or government agencies. 

The effects of the creation and allocation of rights in intellectual property upon the profitability of commercial entities and the operational efficiency of governmental entities has never been more evident. The generation, use, and control of intellectual property rights is a material factor for consideration in the preparation and execution of many, if not most entities’ business plans. In this respect, the government contracting environment is little different from the purely commercial business environment.

When it comes to how intellectual property is generated, used, and controlled, however, the government procurement environment is governed by statutes and regulations that impose risks and present opportunities to contractors that can be very different from the risks and opportunities found in the commercial environment.
