Two McKinney Professors to Present at Conference at Stanford Law
Professor Emily Michiko Morris and Professor Lea Shaver will present at the 12th Annual Intellectual Property Scholars Conference, slated for August 9 and 10 at Stanford Law School.
Professor Morris will present a work-in-progress titled "'Overbreadth' as Oversimplification," in which she argues that the current focus on alleged over breadth in patent scope, as seen in the Supreme Court's recent decisions in Prometheus and Bilski and in myriad Federal Circuit decisions, oversimplifies a variety of concerns that we have in patent law.
Professor Shaver will present her paper titled “Time for a Truce: Lessons from the Lightbulb Litigation for the Smartphone Patent War,” which contains analysis and commentary in what she calls “the brewing ‘patent war’ in the smartphone industry.”
Professor Morris is an associate professor of law and Dean’s Fellow, who has been teaching at the law school since 2008.
Professor Shaver is an associate professor of law. She holds a J.D. from Yale Law School and taught there and at Hofstra Law School before joining the faculty at IU Robert H. McKinney School of Law this year.
