Workshop on Anti-suit Injunctions and FRAND Litigation

So I am still on break, but I thought I should alert readers to an online workshop being put on next week by the Chinese University of Hong Kong.  For viewers in the U.S., the conference will be on Thursday, December 16, from 7 to 10:30 P.M. (ah, time zone differences). Details from the workshop webpage are below, and links to the two papers to be discussed can be found here and here.  I will be one of the commentators.


Jointly organized by the Centre for Financial Regulation and Economic Development (CFRED) at CUHK LAW and the Center for Law and Intellectual Property at Texas A&M University School of Law, this workshop brings together intellectual property and other legal experts to examine the emergence of anti-suit injunctions in patent litigation in China. Conducted in a roundtable format, the event fosters a dialogue among participants from China, the United States and other parts of the world.
