A special discussion brought to you by InsideCounsel and Dickstein Shapiro LLP
InsideCounsel and Dickstein Shapiro are hosting a roundtable in New York City on November 19 that will focus on the issue of “patent trolls.”

We are writing to personally invite you to participate in what promises to be an extremely informative roundtable discussion and peer-to-peer symposium.

The panel will feature the Attorneys General of Missouri, Nebraska, and Vermont speaking about their recent efforts to combat harmful business practices involving “patent trolls” in their states.

The panel also will feature the General Counsels of DuPont, Rackspace, and Walmart US who will speak about the effect patent trolls have had on their businesses. The panel will be moderated by Bernie Nash, Practice Leader of Dickstein Shapiro’s State Attorney General Practice.

Vermont Attorney General Bill Sorrell was the first AG to use his State’s consumer protection law to combat these abusive practices and his case marks a potential watershed moment and the beginning of a new front to combat frivolous patent suits while preserving the important function of the patent system.

Nebraska Attorney General Jon Bruning is the co-chair of the National Association of Attorneys General’s Intellectual Property Committee, and is engaged in litigation against “patent trolls” and their attorneys under Nebraska’s Consumer Protection Act.

Missouri Attorney General Chris Koster is actively engaged in investigating the impact of trolls on Missouri businesses.

The roundtable will take place on November 19, 2013 from 1:30 – 4:00 pm at the Intercontinental New York Barclay, 111 East 48th Street, New York, NY 10017. Please join us for a buffet lunch from 1:00 – 1:30 PM and a networking reception with the AGs and other panelists from 4:00 – 5:30 PM. There is no fee to attend the event.

Thank you, and we hope to see you in New York City.
