Oxfirst Free Webinar on IEEE Standards Patent Policy by IEEE Experts
Our friend at Oxfirst, Roya Ghafele, has let us know about another timely webinar sponsored by Oxfirst. Dr. Karachalios, Managing Director of IEEE, and Michael Lindsay, Partner at Dorsey LLP will present “Review of IEEE Standards Association (IEEE-SA) Patent Policy”. The talk will cover:
IEEE-SA's Attempt to Provide Greater Clarity in its Patent Policy was triggered by how the landscape was evolving (recommendations from regulators; observations by the courts; IEEE's own experiences). This led to IEEE's re-examination of its standards patent policy, and the resultant policy updates aim at providing greater clarity to all stakeholders.
Dr. Karachalios’ biography states: “Dr. Karachalios is responsible for providing strategic and operational leadership and direction to IEEE-SA and for ensuring its consistent and positive differentiation as a standards body. Prior to that he served the EPO in various functions.” Mr. Lindsay’s biography states: “Michael Lindsay is a partner in the Trial practice and Co-Chair of the Antitrust practice of Dorsey LLP. He practices in the area of general civil litigation, with a strong emphasis on antitrust (litigation and counseling), trademark and unfair competition, commercial litigation.”
The talk is scheduled for February 17, 2016 at 15:00 GMT. To register please follow this link: https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/5055758245458402049.
