Green Patents, Post-Grant Review, Contingent Fees, and the AIA at Notre Dame Symposium

February 26th, 2012 by Eric Lane Leave a reply »

I will be speaking at the Emerging Issues in Intellectual Property Symposium at Notre Dame Law School on Friday, March 2, 2012, along with Chicago-Kent College of Law Professor David Schwartz and Kirkland & Ellis partner Barry Irwin. 

Professor Schwartz will present his work on contingent fee patent litigation, and Mr. Irwin will talk about post-grant review at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.

I will present on the green patent fast track programs offered in intellectual property offices around the world.  My talk will discuss the details of these initiatives, which provide for accelerated examination of patent applications directed to green technologies.

I will also present a critical analysis of the programs and discuss my proposal for a harmonized international green patent fast track system (more on that later, but my article on the subject can be found here).

The speakers will also participate in a panel discussion on the America Invents Act.

The info on the symposium can be found in the pic of the flyer above.  I hope to see you there.
