On May 8, 2013 Morgan Lewis presented the 2013 Technology Series webinar, "Antitrust Enforcers Charge onto the Patent Battleground."
Companies affected by standard setting-whether as patent owners, implementers, or both-need to keep up with the changing shape of the battlefield. Recently, antitrust enforcers opened up several new fronts in a war that had already involved several district courts, the German courts, the International Trade Commission, and the Federal Circuit. Our panel will discuss what tech companies need to know about standard-related patents, RAND commitments, and competition law to navigate this changing landscape.
