Data Rights & Patents
If you have spent time and money to develop a process, service or technology, you likely want to protect and profit from the investment.
Establishing copyrights, trademarks and patents is only one step in the process when selling your products or services to the U.S. Government as a prime or subcontractor. Properly identifying, segregating and marking your data, technology and software is a critical part of the process, especially for commercial items.
To retain your rights, you need to assert the appropriate level of rights to be given to your customer in your proposals, document the source of funds or contracts under which the data or software was created, and mark all documents, software and data before sending it outside the company whether as a formal deliverable or an email communication.
