Morgan Lewis international trade partner Margaret Gatti and of counsel Louis Rothberg will be hosting a timely webinar to discuss issues that relate to USG contracts and rights in patents and technical data.

If you are a U.S. government (USG) contractor working with patents and technical data or information, you probably have questions on the processes and possible implications to your business.

Discussion will include:

  • How do I find out what provisions concerning patents and technical data apply to my USG contract?
  • As a USG subcontractor, do I have the right to patent a device I invent while performing a contract using USG funds?
  • Are the rules applied to rights in patents under USG contracts the same rules as those applied to rights in technical data?
  • A U.S. patent holder has threatened to sue me for infringement of its patent that I used while performing a USG contract. What should I do?
