Nash & Gray: Demystifying IP – Rights in Inventions & Patents; Introduction to Rights in Technical Data and Computer Software
June 13, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm$189
Intellectual Property issues are raised in nearly every Federal procurement, and are critical and foundational in high-tech acquisition. Most recently, we have witnessed a significant spike in the pace and significance of statutory and regulatory changes to the rules for acquiring IP, and understanding this evolution will be a focus area in the 2019 virtual class series. A key aspect of understanding how the game is changing, and what is likely to come next, is to understand the rules as they exist today. Session 3 lays the foundation for that understanding, focusing first on “patent rights” (i.e., rights in patents and inventions “made” or used under Government contracts), following by and introduction to “data rights” (i.e., rights in technical data and computer software developed or delivered under contract). An overview of topics covered:
- How many different clauses does the government use to address the rights to patents on inventions made during the performance of a government contract?
- How does the government determine that an invention is subject to the Patent Rights clause of the contract?
- What rights does the government take to patents on inventions made during the performance of a government contract?
- What must a contractor do to retain commercial rights to patents on inventions made during the performance of a government contract?
- What rights does the government take to contractor’s pre-existing patents covering technology embedded in a product delivered under a government contract?
- What is a “march in right”?
- Is there a distinction between the rights in technical data and computer software and the requirement for the delivering or otherwise furnishing of technical data and computer software?
- How are copyrights and trade secrets covered in the standard IP clauses?
- What rights does the government take to copyrighted material included in technical data or computer software?
- Can the contractor disseminate or sell rights to copyrighted material that it created with government funds
- How is computer software covered in the standard IP clauses?
The Nash & Gray virtual class series provides access to two experts in Government Contracting Intellectual Property law and policy, on a monthly basis. The sessions will dive deep into important and timely issues related to IP and Data Rights for government employees and contractors. And, of course, bring your questions to the sessions.
