Video-Intellectual Property and Data Rights Overview.aspx
What is Intellectual Property? What are data rights? Why is it important to the US Government?  Why do you need to know about it? Basic answers to these questions can be found by watching a new video created by DAU, “Intellectual Property and Data Rights.”  The video provides a quick overview of Intellectual Property (IP) and Data Rights and why the DOD needs to focus on this issue when acquiring or modifying a weapons system. 

View the video to get a fast and easy introductory insight into the topic prior to enrolling in DAU online courses such as CLE 068, or before engaging in the topic in PMT 401 or 402. Also, use it as a quick "refresher" at any time.

This policy also establishes a pilot program that requires agencies, when commissioning new
custom software, to release at least 20 percent of new custom-developed code as Open Source
Software (OSS) for three years, and collect additional data concerning new custom software to
inform metrics to gauge the performance of this pilot.6
