DePaul College of Law's Center for Intellectual Property Law and Information Technology (CIPLIT®) will be hosting the 17th Niro Distinguished Intellectual Property Lecture and Luncheon on September 22, 2016. This program features an influential figure in IP/IT who addresses faculty, students and attorneys on current IP/IT issues. This year's lecture "Trolls and Other Patent Inventions" features Professor Zorina Khan.
Is the U.S. patent system today in crisis because of excessive litigation, patent trolls, radical new technological advances, and other unprecedented developments of the twenty-first century? The historical record sheds light on the nature and validity of these controversies, and proposed policy solutions. Such empirical information from the past two centuries as patents granted, litigation rates, and analyses of the role of non-practicing entities, indicate that the present features of the market in intellectual property are hardly anomalous. Indeed, they have been inherently associated with disruptive technologies that transformed the United States into the global leader in industrial and economic growth.
Lunch will be served. Contact Brett Harrison Davinger at email@example.com for more information.
