Summary of Erlangen Conference on Injunctions and Proportionality

Today begins day two of the conference at Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich on "Injunctions and Flexibility in Patent Law - Civil Law and Common Law Perspectives." So far the event has been terrific. There were many excellent presentations yesterday, including talks by Judge Klaus Grabinski and Mr. Justice Richard Arnold, and today will feature among others Judge James Robart, Lord David Kitchin, and Judge Matthias Zigann. (For a discussion of the Grabinski and Arnold presentations, see this post on FOSS Patents--definitely worth a read!)  Two weeks ago, I had the honor of speaking at a conference held at Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg on "Enforcing Patents Smoothly: From Automatic Injunctions to Proportionate Remedies," and I'm happy to report that IPKat has now published a post summarizing that conference. I encourage any of you who were unable to attend the Erlangen conference to read the post.
