A Comprehensive Course for Contractors and Agencies on Maximizing & Preserving the Value of 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.
The purpose of this course is to identify and discuss the statutes and regulations that govern the creation, allocation, and preservation of intellectual property rights under federal government procurement contracts. The course is organized into specific educational modules. Each module starts by presenting the basic rules and regulations relevant to the specific topic of the module and concludes with interactive practical exercises. These interactive practical exercises use real world examples -- fact patterns, negotiating positions, or contract clauses – to highlight the operation of the rules and regulations presented in the module with the goal of developing responses that reflect defensible applications of these legal requirements. Consequently, this approach gives each participant the opportunity to test and reinforce her or his understanding of this material in real time and while in an educational environment.
This course effectively blends detailed instruction with practical, hands-on exercises that are designed to explain and reinforce the complex legal rules and requirements relating to the origination and allocation of contractors’ rights in intellectual property used or arising in the performance if U.S. government procurement contracts. Real world examples and interactive problem-solving exercises provide what purely lecture-based presentations cannot – real time reinforcement that maximizes the educational and practical benefits for each participant.
