Can You Hear Me Now?

Sunday, August 14th, 2011

This month, we are excited to present a fireside chat with two senior executives from Verizon: Executive Vice President Tom Tauke and Assistant Vice President Link Hoewing. Among other topics, Tom and Link talk about the role ISPs should play when it comes to discouraging copyright infringement online, and the federal regulations that are today both encouraging and constraining innovation in wireless and wireline service. UCLA Law Professor Doug Lichtman hosts.  Note: CLE credit is temporarily unavailable for this course.

The Federal Trade Commission just released its much-anticipated second report on patent system reform. And, on this edition of the IP Colloquium, two of the principal drafters of that report — Suzanne Michel of the Office of Policy Planning, and Deputy General Counsel William Cohen — join UCLA Law Professor Doug Lichtman to talk about its specific reform recommendations.  Note: CLE credit is temporarily unavailable for this course.
