The Importance of Marking SBIR/STTR Data

December 7, 2021  | Noon - 1:00 PM MT (2-3:00 ET) | Virtual - Training offered Dawnbreaker on behalf of the Department of Energy

SBIR/STTR Data protection is one of the most unique and important protections accorded Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) firms. These protections apply to all phases of the SBIR and STTR programs and have special implications for Phase III. If SBIR/STTR data rights have been appropriately marked and protected, then Phase III status brings with it the right to sole-source contracts. Marking SBIR/STTR data rights appropriately is required to receive this benefit.
 
Presenter: David Metzger, the leading expert on SBIR/STTR data rights, has just completed a new Tutorial available on the SBIR.gov website entitled SBIR Data Marking; What, Why and How. David Metzger is a retired partner of Arnold & Porter. He has dedicated a large part of his practice to the issue of SBIR data rights and made a deep and lasting impression on the SBIR program and the success of many companies.
