The Legislative Committee of the Patent & Trademark Office Society requests the pleasure of your company at
Suing the Government for Patent and Copyright Infringement:
The Constraints of Sovereign Immunity
Presented by Judge Edward J. Damich
U.S. Court of Federal Claims
September 15, 2011
1:00 PM – 2:00 PM
Madison Building, North Auditorium
Patent and copyright infringement cases proceeding against the federal government are brought before the U.S. Court of Federal Claims. These cases differ dramatically from those involving only private parties. For example, the Court of Federal Claims cannot enjoin patent infringement by the federal government and monetary awards are limited to a reasonable royalty!
Judge Damich’s presentation will not only cover the above, but also the long and storied history of infringement suits against the government, government contractor immunity, intriguing statutory anomalies, and issues of classified information.
