Professor Amy Landers was a presenter at Boston University School of Law’s 2019 Journal of Science & Technology Law and International Law Journal Symposium.
The symposium, “Intellectual Property in a Globalized Economy: United States Extraterritoriality in International Business,” focused on the extent of intellectual property protection for U.S. patents, trademarks, copyrights and trade secrets in the context of an increasingly globalized business climate.
Landers was joined by Professor Timothy R. Holbrook of Emory University School of Law, Professor Andrew C. Michaels of the University of Houston Law Center and Professor Jorge L. Contreras of the University of Utah College of Law.
The panel focused on “Foreign Sales in the Wake of Lexmark, Halo and WesternGeco,”a case exploring patent-practicing devices sold by an international company and whether this infringed upon a U.S. patent. In a 7-2 decision, the U.S. Supreme Court found that a ruling of lost profits is a permissible domestic application of §284 of the Patent Act.
