Funded Space Act agreements should address the allocation of intellectual property rights. When the funded Space Act agreement is a Joint Sponsored Research Agreement (JSRA), a detailed description of the appropriate intellectual property clauses can be found in the JSRA Program Information Package (PIP) described in section 5.3 below. Otherwise, determining the appropriate allocation of intellectual property rights for a funded Space Act agreement is a fact-specific, case-by-case determination. As such, patent counsel should be consulted as early as possible for best results.
