Slated for release in August of 2008 by Oxford University Press, Intellectual Property In Government Contracts: Protecting And Enforcing IP At The State And Federal Level is being coauthored by James G. McEwen in collaboration with two pre-eminent intellectual property practitioners whose combined experience spans the private and government sectors. Intellectual Property in Government Contracts provides a comprehensive survey of U.S. federal and state intellectual property procurement laws and gives valuable advice to government and private-sector attorneys on aspects of intellectual property, government procurement, and litigation from the perspectives of both the government and the contractor communities.
IP attorneys will find an extensive overview of U.S. federal and state procurement systems, strategies for preserving IP rights in the procurement process, and the practical guidance needed to avoid the pitfalls of government IP contracting while taking advantage of existing contracting flexibility.
The treatise will provide a roadmap for high-tech contractors doing business with the government sector in the United States, and will include an examination of methods proven to ensure compliance with government provisions.
Additionally, the treatise analyzes remedies that actually work, and those that do not. Further, the treatise will offer an honest, nuanced appraisal of areas in which the government is legitimately vulnerable (like trademarks) and areas in which misapprehensions have wrongly scared off private sector companies (like patent march-in rights).
