On March 10, 2016, Washington D.C. partner and co-chair of the IP group, Bob Stoll, spoke on a panel at the 11th Annual Advanced Patent Law Institute co-hosted by the USPTO, the University of Texas School of Law and George Mason University School of Law. The program was held on the USPTO campus in Alexandria, Virginia, and was attended by 200 patent lawyers. Bob’s panel was moderated by Rob Sterne from Stern Kessler and other panelists included Hon. Paul Michel, former Chief Judge of the CAFC.
The topic was The Patent Landscape: Economics of Enforceability and Licensing. Issues ranged from patent subject matter eligibility to licensing regimes involving standard essential patents and other dramatic patent law changes in recent years and their impacts on the patent system.
