State Bar of Georgia IP Section, Litigation Committee Lunch Event
"Presumption of Irreparable Harm in Requests for Injunctions After eBay"
The Supreme Court, in its 2006 decision in eBay Inc. v. MercExchange, L.L.C. (547 U.S. 388), rejected the general rule favoring the granting of permanent injunctions against patent infringement, instead holding that the traditional four-factor analysis for permanent injunctive relief applied in patent infringement cases.
The Litigation Committee invites you to attend its Nov. 28 lunch program featuring a panel discussion examining the after-effects of the eBay decision. The panel, moderated by Committee Chair David M. Lilenfeld, will feature Ronald T. Coleman Jr., of Parker Hudson Rainer & Dobbs; Ann G. Fort, of Sutherland; and Frank G. Smith III, of Alston & Bird.
