When doing business with the Federal Government, you (the contractor) may encounter situations where the government is entitled to receive intellectual property rights.  The scope of government rights in a contractor’s intellectual property depends primarily on the type of intellectual property at issue, specifically, whether the intellectual property is a patent or patentable intellectual property, copyrighted material, or rights in technical data or computer software.

Small businesses participating in the SBIR/STTR programs especially encounters those different types of IP and should have a good understanding of the rights the government may be entitled to and  small businesses participating in the SBIR/STTR program it is important to understanding Intellectual Property (IP) ‐ Patents, Trade Secrets,Trademarks, and Copyrights
