This is not related to patent remedies, but may be of interest of readers in the Minneapolis/St. Paul metropolitan area. Professor Jorge Contreras of the S.J. Quinney College of Law at the University of Utah--who is probably best known to readers of this blog for his work on standard-essential patents--will be giving a talk on his new book, The Genome Defense: Inside the Epic Legal Battle to Determine Who Owns Your DNA, at Valley Bookseller in Stillwater, Minnesota on Saturday, October 30, at 2 p.m. I'm hoping to attend myself; the book, about the Myriad patent litigation, sounds very interesting.
Update: The event in Stillwater will be at Zephyr Lofts, a few doors down from Valley Books, due to space constraints at the bookstore.
