I am a contractor of the U.S. Government (includes NIH contractors). What do I do?

Unlike works of the U.S. Government, works produced by contractors under government contracts (or submitted in anticipation of such contracts) are protected and restricted under U.S. copyright law.

Contract terms and conditions vary between agencies and depend on the terms of the contract and the type of work undertaken; we advise you to consult your counsel if you are in any doubt as to whether this statement applies to you. You are required to supply a copyright statement to be used.
