Program Description

From smart phones to gasoline additives to ANDA use definitions, industry and regulatory standards can have a critical impact on IP rights.

Expert panelists will examine how courts use standards to define the scope of related IP rights, how obligations tied to standards (e.g., FRAND commitments) can affect monetary damages, and the impact on exclusion orders and injunctions in both the pharmaceutical and computer industries. 

This program will include the viewpoint of regulatory standard participants and standard development organizations (SDOs) to assess their impact on corresponding patents.

CLE Credit

States typically decide whether a program qualifies for MCLE credit in their jurisdiction 4-8 weeks after the program application is submitted. For many live events, credit approval is not received prior to the program.
