The Army this afternoon published its new policy on managing intellectual property, along with a Dec. 7 directive from Secretary Mark Esper.

"A deliberate and balanced IP management policy is critical to foster private innovation, allow greater access to new technologies, and maintain readiness at an affordable cost," the policy states. "As IP law and regulation continue to evolve, the Army will quickly adapt the IP management policy accordingly."

Alexis Ross, one of the policy's authors, in an interview with Inside Defense this month detailed what the policy seeks to accomplish.
