A Couple of Upcoming Events on Patent Remedies

First, as reported the other day on the Essential Patents Blog, the AIPLA Annual Meeting in Washington, D.C. will feature a session this coming Thursday, October 23, at 3:30 p.m. titled "Practical Considerations in Litigating Standard Essential Patents."  According to the post, David Long of Kelley Drye will moderate a one-hour panel discussion with United States District Judge James Holderman (the author of the FRAND opinion in In re Innovatio IP Ventures LLC, which I blogged about here) and Administrative Law Judge Theodore Essex (whose very different views on FRAND, as expressed in his Initial Determination in In the Matter of Certain Wireless Devices with 3G and/or 4G Capabilities and Components Thereof, were the subject of my blog post here).  Sounds like it should be a great session.
Second, American University's Washington College of Law and the University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law will be presenting a conference at American University in Washington, D.C., on November 11, 2014, titled "Patent + Policy -- The Future of Patent Remedies."  I will be presenting a paper I am currently working on with Norman Siebrasse, titled "A New Framework for Determining Reasonable Royalties in Patent Litigation."  (The paper is still a work in progress, but I will notify readers when it is up on ssrn.)  Here is a link to the conference website, and here is the conference description and schedule:
Over the past few years, the once-placid world of patent remedies has been thrown into upheaval.  Judicial decisions and pronouncements by enforcement agencies have both put pressure on traditional doctrines relating to damages, fee recovery and injunctive relief.  This symposium will explore recent developments and the future trajectory of patent remedies law from a judicial, regulatory and legislative standpoint.  Please join us for this important event.
