Save The Date – 5 July 2017 – KEI side event @ WIPO SCP 26 – Compulsory licensing of patents in the United States

Knowledge Ecology International: Compulsory licensing of patents in the United States
DATE: Wednesday, 5 July 2017
TIME: 1 PM to 3 PM
VENUE: Room NB0.107, World Intellectual Property Organization

Knowledge Ecology International (KEI) cordially invites you to attend our side event during deliberations at the Twenty-Sixth Session of Standing Committee on the Law of Patents (SCP) of the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO).

KEI’s Counsel, Andrew S. Goldman, will present on: “Running royalties as remedy to continued infringement of patents, with an emphasis on United States legal practice under the eBay legal doctrine.” In U.S. patent infringement cases, courts may issue compulsory licenses of patents, including patents on medical technologies, instead of issuing injunctions. In this talk, we will explore the legal framework underpinning these norms and examine how this has worked in practice.

Moderator: Polly Markandya

Keynote Speaker: Andrew Spencer Goldman (Counsel, Policy & Legal Affairs, KEI)
