04.05.13 | Robert S. Katz presents at Stanford Law School’s “Design Patents in the Modern World” Conference

Robert S. Katz presents at the Stanford Law School’s “Design Patents in the Modern World” conference.  The conference is co-sponsored by the Stanford Program in Law, Science, & Technology, Samsung Electronics, Nike, and Google.

Stanford Law School will host a major conference on design patents April 5-6, 2013. Long neglected in practice and academic scholarship, design patents have exploded in importance as a result both of recent changes in the law and high-profile cases like Apple v. Samsung.  Drawing on the experience of lawyers, in-house counsel and academics, this conference will explore both practical and policy ramifications of these developments.

Along with the public conference on April 5, Stanford will host a one-day academic symposium with papers on design patents from the leading scholars in the world on these issues.
