On Thursday, April 11 at Loyola University Law School, the Loyola University Chicago Law Journal is putting on a program called: Patents, Innovation & Freedom to Use Ideas. Click here for the program brochure. The program has an interesting mix of theoretical and practical discussions. Among the more interesting topics are:
- Chief Judge Holderman discussing Innovations to Improve Juror Understanding in Patent Trials
- Emory University’s Professor Timothy Holbrook (a former Chicagoan), Boston University’s Professor Michael Mueur (who has written interesting articles regarding the costs of NPE suits); and University of San Diego Professor Ted Sichelman discussing Shortcomings in the Patent System.
This looks like an excellent program.
