SBIR/STTR Data protection is one of the most unique and important protections accorded Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer Research (STTR) firms. These protections apply to all phases of the SBIR and STTR programs: Phase I, Phase II, and Phase III. In this course a number of key points are explored and discussed: (1) What is SBIR data? (2) What are the civilian and defense data rights clauses and how do they differ? (3) What is Phase III and why is Phase III valuable? (4) How does patenting affect SBIR/STTR data rights; and (5) Licensing SBIR/STTR Data and technologies.
