SBIR assistance providers often uncover serious missteps in intellectual property (IP) management and contracting, both in Phase I and Phase II contracts. The worst of those missteps can result in a company’s loss of control of key aspects of their IP, effectively hampering or disabling product development and possibly risking the transition to Phase II.

Many SBIR projects require subcontracts for services and collaborations. Nearly all subcontracts include terms for management of intellectual property (IP). Often those terms are overlooked or misinterpreted. Learn which types of contracts are most likely to put your company at risk, how to locate those terms in an agreement, and how to determine which types of terms put your company at risk.
