Intellectual Property Issues in Government Contracts and Grants Webinar


This event qualifies for 1.5 CLPs

For many government contacts, the allocation of intellectual property rights is the most critical issue both parties will face.  In this 90 minute webinar, an experienced government procurement attorney will survey critical government contract intellectual property issues.  The course will address:


  • The different types of intellectual property, including differences between commercial and government contract IP

  • Computer software and documentation: allocation by license and by the FAR/DFAR clauses
  • Commercial computer software: EULA and standard commercial licenses
  • Patent rights, including Bayh-Dole provisions
  • Research vehicles: SBIRs/CRADAs/”Other transactions,” and beyond
  • Compliance issues in government contract IP: avoiding the False Claims Act and debarment
  • “Soft IP:” NDAs and other confidentiality provisions

Who Should Attend:

  • Contract and Subcontract Administrators
  • In-House or Corporate Counsel
  • CEOs, COOs, and VPs of small contractors
  • Capture Team and Business Development Personnel
  • Operational Mid- and Senior-Level Personnel
