Washington and Lee law professor Christopher Seaman presented at the Fourth Annual Patent Colloquium on Friday, November 20, 2015. The colloquium was hosted by the University Toronto, Faculty of Law. Professor Seaman participated on a panel entitled “The Evolving Landscape of Patent Remedies” to discuss permanent injections and ongoing royalty awards in U.S. patent litigation after the Supreme Court’s decision in eBay v. MercExchange (2006). The talk presented empirical research from Professor Seaman’s recent and forthcoming articles in the Texas Intellectual Property Law Journal and the Iowa Law Review.
Professor Seaman’s article in the Texas Intellectual Property Law Journal is titled “Ongoing Royalties in Patent Cases After eBay: An Empirical Assessment and Proposed Framework“. It appeared in volume 23 of the journal in the spring 2015 issue.
“Permanent Injunctions in Patent Litigation After eBay: An Empirical Study” will be published in a forthcoming issue of the Iowa Law Review.
