While I work on making this blog more user-friendly and visually stunning, I may as well post links to a couple of recent items that have appeared elsewhere.
First, last week Professor Danny Sokol’s Antitrust and Competition Policy Blog hosted an online symposium on my book Comparative Patent Remedies: A Legal and Economic Analysis (Oxford University Press 2013), with commentary by Professors Norman Siebrasse, Marketa Trimble, and Peter Yu. Links to the reviews are here, here, and here. Many thanks to Professor Sokol and to the reviewers.
Second, I posted an essay last week on IntellectualIP.com, a blog cosponsored by Briggs & Morgan P.A. and the University of Minnesota Law School, on Judge Robart's opinion on RAND royalties in Microsoft v. Motorola. The link is here.
Third, the big news so far this week is the European Commission's issuance of a Statement of Objections to Motorola Mobility concerning the latter's attempt to enforce an injunction against Apple in Germany. The issue is whether the pursuit of injunctive relief for the alleged infringement of standard-essential patents constitutes an abuse of dominant position under E.U. competition law. The Commission's press release can be found here. Good coverage in the Wall Street Journal and at Foss Patents.
