DODI 5010.44: Intellectual Property (IP) Acquisition and Licensing

“Weapon and information systems acquired by DOD in support of the warfighter are, and will be, increasingly dependent on technology for its operation, maintenance, modernization, and sustainment. Acquiring and licensing the appropriate IP is vital for ensuring the systems will remain functional, sustainable, upgradable and affordable. Because balancing the interests of the U.S. Government and industry in IP can be difficult, early and effective understanding, planning, and communications between the U.S. Government and industry is critical, as is ensuring delivery, acceptance, and management of the necessary IP deliverables (e.g., technical data and computer software), with appropriate license rights. The DOD requires fair treatment of IP owners, and seeks to create conditions that encourage technologically advanced solutions to meet DOD needs.”
