Developing technology pursuant to government contracts is fertile ground for future innovation and licensing opportunities. While involvement in Federal procurement may seem complex, these avenues for technology development and dual-use licensing prove extremely profitable for businesses willing to engage the Government as a development partner. Congress departed from its tradition of retaining title to contractor inventions with the passage of the Bayh-Dole Act, 35 U.S.C. section 200 et seq. Pursuant to Bayh-Dole, Congress granted small business firms, universities, and other non-profit scientific and educational organizations the right to retain title to inventions made under federally funded research and development contracts and grants.
