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.Â
ProfessorÂ Schwartz will present his work on contingent fee patent litigation, andÂ Mr. Irwin will talk about post-grant review at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.
I will present onÂ the green patent fast track programs offered in intellectual property offices around the world.Â My talk will discuss the details of these initiatives, whichÂ provide for accelerated examination of patent applications directed to green technologies.
I will alsoÂ present a critical analysis of the programs andÂ discuss my proposal forÂ a harmonizedÂ international green patent fast track systemÂ (more on that later, but my article on the subject can be foundÂ 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.Â I hope to see you there.
