“The Pentagon is taking a practical approach; ‘We want the IP that we absolutely need to perform the mission.’ That’s really important, because they are trying to get non-traditional contractors into the fold,” Crusius said. “The only way they are really going to do that is to keep their IP they develop without worrying that a competitor is going to swoop in and get access tp their IP. There’s a lot of that going on within the NDAA.”
