The New York State Science and Technology Law Center Innovation Review Newsletter
In a recent post on IP Finance, I discussed the late Syracuse University Law School Professor Ted Hagelin’s excellent casebook titled, Technology Innovation Law and Practice. Professor Hagelin was the founder and Director of the very successful Technology Commercialization Law Program at Syracuse University College of Law; Director of the New York State Science and Technology Law Center; Crandall Melvin Professor of Law; and Kauffman Professor of Entrepreneurship and Innovation. When I wrote that post, I did not realize that University of Wisconsin Law School’s Vilas Research Fellow & George Young Bascom Professor in Business Law Shubha Ghosh had been hired by Syracuse. This is an excellent hire and quite a coup for Syracuse. Professor Ghosh will be the new Crandall Melvin Professor of Law at Syracuse University College of Law and director of the Technology Commercialization Law Program. Professor Ghosh is a leading law professor in the U.S. and has authored over 20 articles as well as several books including Identity, Invention and the Culture of Personalized Medicine Patenting (Cambridge University Press 2012), and Transactional Intellectual Property (West 2nd ed. 2012).
The New York State Science and Technology Law Center also has a newsletter: Innovation Review. The recent edition is filled with interesting and helpful information, including a discussion of the pending cases at the U.S. Supreme Court concerning enhanced damages, the Obama budget for the USPTO, and a recent Sixth Circuit case concerning licensing. Notably, the Center is offering the following free webinar seminars taught by Professor Ghosh:
