Protecting IP and Technology Under Federal Contracts and Grants

Holland & Knight Webinar
March 29, 2018
3:00 PM - 4:00 PM ET

Please join Holland & Knight's Government Contracts Group for "Federally Funded Technology Development: Protecting Intellectual Property and Enhancing Commercialization Value." In this live presentation, we will discuss how to protect intellectual property rights and enhance the commercialization value of technology developed under federal contracts, grants and other funding agreements.


  • The interplay between the "Doctrine of Segregability," the "Source of Funds Rule" and the regulatory concept of when technology is "developed" for the purpose of determining rights in technology delivered under federal contracts and grants.
  • Applying these concepts to explore how federal contractors and grant recipients can design technology and plan its iterative development to enhance the exclusivity of commercialization of key components, sub-processes, sub-systems or sub-routines.
  • Address challenges in the protection of intellectual property rights developed or delivered under federal contracts through adequate documentation of development activity, rights assertions in proposals and appropriate marking of deliverables.

We hope you can join us for this highly informative program.
