The Department of Commerce issued Government-wide regulations which prescribe the terms, conditions, and procedures upon which a federally-owned invention may be licensed both internationally and domestically. The Department of Commerce regulations take precedence over individual agency licensing regulations. NASA grants licenses in accordance with the Department of Commerce regulations. Thus, NASA is cancelling its foreign licensing regulations.Start List of Subjects
