Happy New Year from all of us at Patent Progress!
At CES on Wednesday, there was a great panel on Patent Litigation Reform: Who are You Calling a Troll?, moderated by Joe Mullin, Technology Policy Reporter, ArsTechnica, featuring a keynote presentation from The Honorable Julie Brill, Commissioner, Federal Trade Commission, and the following panelists: John Amster, CEO and Co-Founder, RPX Corp.; Jon Bruning, Attorney General, State of Nebraska; Lee Cheng, General Counsel and Secretary, Newegg Inc.; Todd Moore, Founder and CEO, TMSOFT LLC; Julie Samuels, Staff Attorney, Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF); Erich Spangenberg, CEO and Co-Chairman, IPNav. Brill emphasized that Congress should not wait for the FTC’s 6(b) study, and “should act with deliberate speed to implement [their] proposed reforms.” Her remarks are available here. I live-tweeted the panel on @PatentProgress. If you scan our feed, or the #IPS2014 hashtag, you’ll get a good idea of the issues discussed.
That’s all the news we have for you now, but we’re excited to get back to work on patent reform.
