The world of standard-essential patent litigation has seen some significant upheaval over the past few months, particularly with the Microsoft-Motorola RAND-setting ruling and the ITC’s exclusion order in Samsung-Apple (and the USTR’s subsequent veto).  Today there will be a complimentary webinar in conjunction with the American Intellectual Property Law Association’s (AIPLA) Standards & Open Source Committee, during which panelists will address these decisions and offer some unique and valuable perspectives on the cases.  We hope you’ll tune in and join us.

The webinar is titled “Practical Considerations & Industry Perspectives in Applying Recent FRAND Rulings,” will take place on from 12:30pm to 1:30pm EDT (9:30-10:30am PDT).  The panel of esteemed experts will include:

  • David Long, Partner at Dow Lohnes PLLC and Co-Founder of The Essential Patent Blog
  • Deanna Tanner Okun, Partner at Adduci, Mastriani & Schaumberg LLP and Former ITC Chairman
  • Mark Snyder, Vice President, Corporate Litigation, Qualcomm Incorporated
  • Gil Ohana, Senior Director, Antitrust and Competition, Cisco Systems

The main focus of this hour-long webinar and Q&A will be on the practical takeaways from Judge Robart’s RAND-setting opinion in Microsoft v. Motorola, and the ITC’s decision and USTR’s disapproval of the exclusion order in Samsung v. Apple (Inv. No. 337-TA-794).  The panelists will discuss the substance of these decisions, and will delve into the real-world implications that these rulings may have in the standard-essential patent licensing arena – including how the outcome of these cases could affect the future actions and incentives of both patent licensors and licensees.

If you can join us later today, please reserve your webinar seat — and we’ll see you in a few hours.
