The New Private Ordering of Intellectual Property: The Emergence of Contracts as the Drivers of Intellectual Property Rights


Friday, April 18, 2008

Join our discussion and luncheon addressing the issues surrounding the recent Supreme Court patent cases LG Electronics v. Quanta, MedImmune v. Genentech, and eBay v. MercExchange.

One consequence of the renewed U.S. Supreme Court interest in patent cases in recent years is an enhanced scrutiny on patent rights generally and, in particular, on the importance of better defining contracts to govern the patent rights among the parties. This conference considers the pertinent jurisprudence to inform prudent business practices in managing patent rights by private agreements.
