May 21, 2008 (All day)

Emily Berger will be speaking on a panel at CFP2008.

"Patents: The Bleeding Edge of Technology Policy"

While patents have long been at the heart of American technology policy, information technology has profoundly challenged the U.S. patent system -- as seen in the intense inter-industry debate over patent reform in Congress. This panel will examine the politics of patent reform in the context of international controversy over patent policy, including a string of Supreme Court decisions, the battle over software and business method patents, and growing tensions between patents and IT standards.
