Teleforum on the Qualcomm/Apple Patent Wars

Last month I participated in a teleforum, titled Dispatches from the Patent Wars: The High-Stakes Battle Between Qualcomm and Apple, sponsored by the IP Practice Group of the Federalist Society.  Here is the description:
American patent law has witnessed a number of high-profile patent wars throughout history and today is no exception. One of the latest chapters is the ongoing battle between Apple and its chip supplier Qualcomm. Among the highlights in this saga, Apple has sued Qualcomm in multiple countries, including in a U.S. suit seeking over a billion dollars in damages, while Qualcomm last month obtained a judgment from a Chinese court ordering Apple to stop selling iPhone 6, 7, and 8 series phones in China. These developments are taking place against a backdrop of disappointing Apple revenues attributed to weak Chinese sales, as well as a shifting international trade environment. This Teleforum will bring together experts to discuss the issues at stake and the likely outcomes of the battle between these technology giants, as well as the larger implications for innovation and intellectual property law and policy.
