SME: Protecting Your Company’s Intellectual Property as a Government Contractor (Colorado Springs)
March 18 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Doing business with ANY government agency is different from commercial customers. And the Federal Government is even more precarious. This is especially true when your company’s intellectual property (IP) is at stake.
What is IP? According to WIPO:
“Intellectual property (IP) refers to creations of the mind, such as inventions; literary and artistic works; designs; and symbols, names and images used in commerce.
IP is protected in law by, for example, patents, copyright and trademarks, which enable people to earn recognition or financial benefit from what they invent or create. By striking the right balance between the interests of innovators and the wider public interest, the IP system aims to foster an environment in which creativity and innovation can flourish.”
So whether you sell products or services, or perform research and development, you are most likely giving the government rights to YOUR IP that you have developed or will develop in the performance of the contract. You can prevent this from happening!
At the end of this practice-oriented course, you will know the rules on how to license technical data to the government, and receive best practice tips for how to protect your company’s ‘Intellectual Property’.
