Professor Contreras will be speaking in New York and Washington this week. On Thursday, Apr. 14, 2016, he will speak at PLI’s 10th Annual Patent Law Institute in New York on the topic of Internet Standards and how standardization in the Internet domain has remained relatively free from the patent disputes and litigation that have recently characterized the wireless networking and telecommunications sectors. On Friday, Apr. 15, 2016, Contreras will co-host a symposium in Washington DC sponsored by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) exploring the intersection of technical standardization and open source software.
