At 1:00 p.m. (Eastern) on September 13, 2012, Crowell & Moring attorneys John McCarthy and Jon Baker will conduct a webinar on behalf of L2 Federal Resources entitled “Intellectual Property Rules in Government Contracts: Know Your Technical Data and Patent Rights.” This 90-minute webinar will provide an overview of the key principles governing the allocation of rights in technical data, computer software, and patents. We will discuss changes to the treatment of commercial items, statutory changes in the National Defense Authorization Act for FY 2012 affecting defense contractors as well as regulations relating to patent rights in FAR Part 27/DFARS Part 227. We will also provide some practical tips to help contractors avoid some traps for the unwary which could lead to the compromise of their intellectual property.
