What:  Santa Clara Computer and High Technology Law Journal’s 25th Annual Symposium

When: Friday, January 30, 2009

Where:  San Jose, Calif.


The 2009 Santa Clara Computer & High Technology Law Journal Symposium takes place in the heart of Silicon Valley, where innovation is happening every day. For years, the Journal has dedicated symposia to the exploration of key issues at the intersection of law and technology.

This year, the Santa Clara Computer & High Technology Law Journal Symposium will explore the current key players, issues and strategies shaping the structure of patent law.  There will be a panel on the ethics of inequitable conduct. Other topics include developments in non-practicing entity patent litigation and litigation before the ITC.

A dramatic rise in filings with the International Trade Commission for patent infringement suits, an increased prevalence of Non-Practicing Entities, and frequent use of inequitable conduct as a defense to patent infringement have significantly affected the evolution of patent law today.

The actors involved are greatly influencing substantive law, in both federal courts and the ITC, and are challenging the conceptions and attitudes of legislators, policymakers, and practitioners toward intellectual property, making this practice area a dynamic and exciting field. The 2009 Symposium will explore and examine these changes and their impact upon high technology law.

Lunch Keynote:  Honorable Randall R. Rader of the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit.
