Everything you need to navigate any intellectual property issue as it pertains to federal procurement! This "A to Z" library examines the rights that the government obtains to patents, technical data, computer software and database information supplied under federal contracts.

VOLUME II: Technical Data Rights

A highly regulated area, intellectual property rights are governed by a multitude of laws, statutes, regulations and provisions—including FAR, DFARS, NASA, the Bayl-Dole Act and DoD regulations.

The Intellectual Property in Government Contracts Series helps you navigate this complex maze by delivering an easy-to-understand explanation of all applicable laws, regulations and rulings and how they affect such major issues as:

  • Patents
  • Trade Secrets
  • Copyrights
  • Grants and Cooperative Agreements
  • "Other Transactions"

For convenient reference, the full text of specific cited sections of relevant government regulations and statutes is included.

This authoritative series, written by noted government contracting experts Ralph C. Nash Jr. and Leonard Rawicz, and the result of the partnership of The George Washington University Law School Government Contracts Program and the CCH Legal Professional group makes it easy for anyone involved in government procurement of intellectual rights to understand — and comply with — the broad and complex controls.

This thorough treatise of technical data laws and regulations provides you with:

  • An examination and comparison of civilianagency data laws and the Department of Defense data laws
  • Concise analysis of technical data provisions and clauses from FAR, DFARS and NASA
