Smartphones and the Patent Battleground
The American Bar Association (ABA) Section of Intellectual Property Law hosts the 28th Annual Intellectual Property Law Conference International Trade Update from April 3-5, 2013 at the Crystal Gateway Marriott Hotel, Arlington, Virginia.
On April 4, 2013, Deanna Tanner Okun participates in the panel discussion entitled Smartphones and the Patent Battleground.
Major smartphone platforms and the supporting companies are fighting for survival, just as billions of smartphone users increasingly become dependent on these devices. The patent battleground in the smartphone wars continues to grow, prompting the key questions of ‘will the winner take all’ or will the marketplace be shared. In this program, discussion focuses on patent strategies used by smartphone competitors, the role of standards essential patents in smartphone litigation, and the advantages and disadvantages of smartphone litigation in the U.S. Federal Courts, before the International Trade Commission or in foreign venues.
