A classic example of how we have $600 hammers & other sweetheart deals. Per
a friend who negotiated and oversaw many similar USG contracts: if
well-written, the contract would have specified that all the intellectual
property developed/paid for by USG would end up USG property.
He talked about having such language in there, the revision he'd get back
would strike it out, he'd put it back in, etc....
