CCIA and The American Antitrust Institute are hosting a panel, Competition Law & Patent Assertion Entities: What Antitrust Enforcers Can Do. This is a big event at the National Press Club today at noon, with FTC Chair Edith Ramirez scheduled to speak. The NY Times reports that Chairwoman Ramirez may make some major announcements as well:
Ms. Ramirez is expected to discuss her recommendation [to address the patent troll problem] on Thursday at a patent law workshop sponsored by the American Antitrust Institute and the Computer & Communications Industry Association, a trade group. A spokesman for the F.T.C. declined to comment on the topic of her speech.
