Texas Intellectual Property Law Journal 15th Annual IP Symposium: FRAND and the Antitrust/Intellectual Property Interface

This coming Friday, February 21, the Texas Intellectual Property Law Journal (TIPLJ) will be hosting its 15th annual I.P. symposium.  This year the topic is "FRAND and the Antitrust/Intellectual Property Interface."  Earlier versions of some of the papers and presentations, including my own, were the subject of the University of Florida Conference that I live-blogged back in September (see here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, and here).  The conference this Friday will also feature some new papers and additional presentations.  I plan to live-blog at least the portions of the conference that will be covering new material.  Here is a link to the TIPLJ conference webpage; I've also reproduced the schedule, from the webpage, below.  Note, however, that Professor.Sokol will be unable to attend, so someone else will be moderating "In House Perspective on FRAND."
