Intellectual Property Rights and Regulations

I need a 1 paragraph response to the following question:

Much of the contract statement of work (SOW) called for a significant amount of noncommercial software to be developed by ITI Inc. during the contract period of performance. At the end of the contract, does ITI Inc. own the intellectual property rights in the form of federal copyrights to the software it developed? Does ITI Inc. need to ask permission from the Air Force to use the software for foreign commercial opportunities it also desires to pursue? Be sure to identify and discuss any relevant regulations.
