Yesterday I presented a talk titled Do Patent Assertion Entities Help or Hinder Innovation? A Review of the Principal Arguments, at the Oregon Patent Law Association's 2014 Salishan Patent Law Conference. The presentations were very good, and it was great to see a little bit of the Pacific Northwest during my stay. I'd like to thank the Klarquist Sparkman firm in particular for its sponsorship of the event.
For readers who may be interested, here is a link to my slides, which update a talk I gave earlier this year and also cover efforts at the state and federal level to address perceived abuses by PAEs.
