Dorsey partner Michael Lindsay is part of the faculty of this national IP conference organized by the Intellectual Property Owners Association. Lindsay and his co-panelist will address principles of competition as they are applied to the standard setting activities. Such forums have been recognized as simultaneously having both procompetitive and anticompetitive potential, making differentiating between the two difficult – a situation only intensified by the increasing prevalence of IP rights that are incorporated into a standard. The panel will discuss the Federal Trade Commission’s activities in this arena, including the N-Data Solutions and Rambus cases.
