An essential two-day program for Government contract professionals

If you’re involved in Government contracting, you undoubtedly know how vital patents, technical data, and computer software rights are. If you don't know, then you must learn, for these rights mean product ownership of intellectual property in both the present and future, and how ownership will be determined between the Government and the contractor.

It is, however, an unusually complex area containing a wide range of variables and circumstances. In addition, the difficulties are compounded by the Government's determination to completely retain title to the patents and technical data for products it has contracted for, and from the unique problems that can arise when computer software is the product at hand.

The purpose of this specialized program is to provide the most practical information possible on computer software, patents, and technical data rights from the perspective of both the Government and contractors and their professional advisors. It is a clear, incisive analysis of each side's rights, responsibilities, and remedies.

The detailed Course Curriculum tells the story. In addition, the program will be presented by an expert Course Faculty — Government contract professionals with exhaustive experience in this crucial area of procurement who have authored an extensive Course Manual for participants.
