Speaking Today at PatCon

Today and tomorrow Northwestern University's Pritzker School of Law is hosting PatCon 7, an annual gathering of patent law professors to present their scholarship.  At 1:30 this afternoon, I'll be speaking with Professor Colleen Chien and Judge Richard Posner (who will be participating via Skype) on our forthcoming book project, Redesigning Patent Law.  Then at 5:20, I'll be presenting A Three Step Approach to Reasonable Royalties, and Professor Norman Siebrasse will be presenting Economic Factors Relevant to Injunctive Relief.  The two latter presentations are outgrowths of some work we've been doing in connection with the International Patent Remedies for Complex Products (INPRECOMP) project, which has involved twenty scholars from around the world and will result, we hope, in the publication of a book sometime within the next year.  INPRECOMP began as a joint venture between the Center for Law, Science and Innovation (CLSI) at Arizona State University's Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law and the Dickson Poon School of Law at King's College London, and is primarily funded by a gift to CLSI from Intel.

Update:  I should mention in addition that, of interest to remedies mavens, tomorrow Professor Sarah Burstein will be presenting A Nonoriginalist Case for the Original Meaning of "Article of Manufacture," which I believe may be relevant to the disgorgement remedy for design patent infringement in the United States; and Professor Christian Helmers will be presenting The Effect of Fee Shifting on Litigation:  Evidence from Court Reform in the UK.  Should be interesting!
