Managing IP Rights in Government Contracts

About the Course: Managing IP becomes much more complicated when contracting with the government. Patent holders must be aware of everything from sovereign immunity issues to reporting requirements; from validation procedures to secrecy orders; from the Competition in Contracting Act to labeling obligations; and, from the State Open Records Acts to March-In Rights. Also, failure to comply with US government laws and regulations such as the Economic Espionage Act can result in violators receiving long jail sentences. If you don’t know the answers to questions such as these, you really should listen to this webinar: How does the Christian Doctrine impact the scope of contracts? Under what circumstances can the government take the title for failure to report subject inventions? What are the consequences of failing to mark pages as confidential that contain trade secrets? What can happen to a government contract if it was executed by someone deemed to not have authority? What are the most salient points to know about state immunity? What is the significance of the statement of work? When can the government claim patent inventions that were never developed? What are the government’s rights to background inventions? What protections do subcontractors have in government contracts? What must you do to confirm the ‘status of invention’ in relation to government contracts? What can cause the loss of trade secret rights? Which regulations must you comply with when delivering software? Course Leader: James G. McEwen, Partner at Stein McEwen LLP James G.
