As reported, the Greater Washington, DC Chapter of the Licensing Executives Society (LES) had a great Patent Damages Symposium on February 23, 2017. Here is a link to some pictures from the event: http://lesusacanada.site-ym.com/blogpost/1326845/269411/Patent-Damages-Symposium
Many thanks to the speakers and host firm, Sidley.
I and the DC Chapter of LES are planning for World IP Day, April 26, 2017, and for the LES Spring meeting here in Washington, DC. We are planning a shindig for the evening of May 8th in connection with the Spring meeting. Stay tuned.
Tomorrow, licensing expert Karen Casser speaks to the Greater Washington, DC Chapter of the Licensing Executives Society. She will speak on practical aspects for licensing. For those in the Washington, DC area, I highly recommend that you attend this informative meeting. The link is below.
On a personal note, Karen gave me one of my first law jobs. When I was a third-year law student at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Karen was the General Counsel for SAS Institute. I suppose my Masters degree in Computer Science helped me get the IP clerk position there, along with faculty recommendations. Both she and SAS treated me well, and I learned a lot about IP.
