Intellectual Property Considerations

As this is a new MSD project, there is currently no generated intellectual property (IP) and the customer has no IP requirements. If a patentable advancement is made during the course of this project, the idea of a patent will be explored by the team. All ideas potentially considered IP will be kept private.
