CEA press conference takes deep dive into patent litigation reform


The Consumer Electronics Association (CEA):



Prior to the 2013 Digital Patriots Dinner, the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA)® will host a press reception focused on the growing and alarming diversion of resources away from innovation as a result of frivolous lawsuits by so-called patent assertion entities (PAEs or patent trolls).

Pulling from experiences of CEA member companies, industry experts and Congress, the reception will be a comprehensive look at the impact of PAEs on the American economy and why sensible reform like the Saving High-tech Innovators from Egregious Legal Disputes (SHIELD) Act is necessary.

This is event is open to credentialed media only.
