    Who Should Attend:  Government, Military, and Industry at all levels who want to learn about the tenets and principles of data rights and how to strike the proper balance between the government and the contractor.

    Speaker:  Stephanie Burris

    Description:   Data Rights are the legal rights the government and/or the contractor have to use technical, Intellectual Property (IP), and software data. This data can include a proposal, source selection, software, management, concepts, and technical packages.  The premiere webinar in the new series, will be an introduction to the framework that controls technical data and computer software that is delivered to Department of Defense components by contractors.  The basic rules that determine how and when we can use and share these deliverables. to the mechanism for contractors to limit DoD's use of technical data and computer software - restrictive legends.

    The seemingly straightforward process of requiring contractors to identify restrictions and include specified markings on deliverables has been impacted by recent court decisions and proposed changes to the existing regulations. Common inappropriate markings, pitfalls and challenges (along with potential solutions) will be discussed to help DoD professionals tackle marking issues at all stages of the program lifecycle.  

    Please join Ms. Stephanie Burris, Chief of Data Rights and Intellectual Property Law and Policy for the Air Force Materiel Command to learn more about this important topic.
