The American Intellectual Property Law Association (AIPLA) is holding its 2016 Annual Meeting from October 27 to 29 in Washington, D.C. Details here. It looks like there will be three sessions devoted in whole or in part to patent remedies on Friday, October 28. First, there's a panel at 10:15 a.m. on "Global IP Protection and Enforcement Strategies," with speakers addressing "Customs Seizure Practices Around the World" How Does the US Compare?"; "Leveraging Information from Foreign Seizures to Protect Rights at the US Border"; and "European Trademark Reform: What's Different and Why Does It Matter?". Second, at 2 p.m. there's a session titled "Patent Licensing," with speakers addressing "The Nuts and Bolts of Licensing: Strategies for Negotiating to Yes"; "Learn About 'Must Have' Licensing Terms from the Perspective of Both Sides"; and "Assessing Value: How Much Is That Patent Really Worth? Techniques for Valuing Patents." Most relevant, perhaps, is a session at 3:30 p.m. titled "Damages 101," with speakers addressing "Hitting a Moving Target: A High Level Guide to Patent Damages Issues"; "Tying the Facts of the Case to the Royalty Analysis: A Peek into an Expert's Approach to Patent Damages"; and "Not All Things That Count Can Be Counted: Approaches and Considerations for Patent Damages." This last presentation will be by someone I've had the pleasure of meeting and speaking with a few times here in Minnesota, Carol Ludington. Should be a good event, though I'll be away at a different meeting that same day.
