This year’s two-day ABA Antitrust Section Intellectual Property/Antitrust conference will take place at the crossroads of Administrations, and will provide a comprehensive review of recent developments, as well as a look ahead at potential changes, involving the intersection of antitrust and intellectual property. It will feature experienced practitioners and senior agency officials and academics, including a roundtable discussion of the sometimes differing enforcement philosophies in the United States and the European Union. The conference will also include keynote addresses from prominent enforcement officials. Breakout sessions will cover topics such as:
- New Directions in U.S. Antitrust Enforcement Under the New Administration
- Standard Setting
- Licensing of Intellectual Property and Patent Pooling
- Market Definition in Technology Markets
The conference will also include a group luncheon (all speakers and registrants are welcome to attend) that will include a keynote address on enforcement priorities for the new Administration.
