27.9 Defining IP ownership and license rights in the contract

27.9.5 IP indemnification/copyright infringement

The contract should include language regarding the rights and obligations of both parties in the event that IP indemnification or copyright infringement issues arise. For IP owned by a supplier under the terms of the contract, the payment of royalties to the Commonwealth by the supplier upon redistribution or use of IP is typically rejected by suppliers due to legal, financial and administrative concerns.
