Competition Law & Patent Assertion Entities: What Antitrust Enforcers Can Do

with special keynote address by FTC Chairwoman Edith Ramirez 

 

Thursday, June 20, 2013

 The National Press Club

12:00pm to 2:30pm


Patent assertion entities, commonly referred to as patent trolls, have received a lot of attention recently.  In the last five years, lawsuits by patent assertion entities have increased more than 250% and now account for more than 60% of all patent litigation.

The White House just issued a series of executive orders and proposals in an effort to curb the growing troll problem and protect competition and innovation. Congress is also considering legislation to provide additional relief.  The powers of our nation's antitrust regulators, however, are often overlooked.

The Computer & Communications Industry Association and The American Antitrust Institute invite you to a panel discussion to examine the unique role these competition watchdogs can play in combating the growing problems in our patent system.

Our panel of government enforcers, industry veterans, and antitrust experts will feature:
 
Ed Black, President and CEO, Computer & Communications Industry Association (Moderator)
Michael Carrier, Professor, Rutgers School of Law
Bert Foer, President, The American Antitrust Institute
Lisa Kimmel, Attorney Advisor, Office of Chairwoman Ramirez, Federal Trade Commission
Frances Marshall, Special Counsel for Intellectual Property, Legal Policy Section, Department of Justice, Antitrust Division
Paul Saraceni, Senior Vice President and Chief Intellectual Property Officer, RPX Corporation

 

Registration will open at 12:00pm and the program will begin promptly at 12:30pm. Complimentary lunch will be served.
