On December 11, 2013, FLH Scientific Advisor Howard E. Rosenberg, Ph.D. will speak on: "Patent Settlements/Pay-for-Delay - are they so incompatible?" as part of the International Broadcasting Convention ("IBC") International Patent Litigation Conference held in London, England, at The Bloomsbury Hotel, 16-22 Great Russell Street, London WC1B 3NN.
Dr. Rosenberg's presentation is a "Case Study" with the following description:
Both in Europe and USA there is pressure for curbing aspects of patent settlements, consequently it has resulted in hotly debated missives from both sides of the divide. Can a patent dispute be resolved in which a settlement can occur where a commercial advantage is obtained by both litigants or is it solely the public purse that has to be of concern?
The IBC website includes a comment from The Right Hon. Professor Sir Robin Jacob explaining the focus of the Conference:
These are interesting times for patent law and procedure. This makes for uncertainty in many directions. Patentees, potential defendants and advisors to both sides are increasingly having to base their actions and predictions on less and less firm material. They need all the help they can get.
This conference is aimed at exploring some of the major questions of the day. IBC Legal have brought together many of the key players in this complex and fast changing world to debate and discuss where things are and may be going. It will be an exciting event - one not to be missed if you really want to know what's going on.
Dr. Rosenberg looks forward to seeing you there at the IBC International Patent Litigation Conference.
