This year's Intellectual Property Organization (IPO) annual meeting in Los
Angeles will feature a one day program on global compulsory licensing of
patents.  The program is heavily focused on lawyers representing big
corporations such as Pfizer, GSK, Microsoft, Philips and Qualcomm, etc,
along with Will Tom from the FTC, Hugh G. Hansen from Fordham, and some
others.

This is from the IPO brochure of the meeting.  (Thanks for Kevin Outterson
for noticing this).

ONE-DAY PROGRAM  Wednesday, September 14
COMPULSORY LICENSING AS AN  EMERGING GLOBAL IP ISSUE

The conference will address compulsory licensing from both geographical and
industry perspectives. Those sessions directed to compulsory licensing in
the United States and Asia (Japan, Taiwan and China) will consider, in
particular, whether we are beginning to see a convergence in how countries
apply compulsory licensing to patent enforcement and what this may mean to
national and international IP rights.

Additional sessions will be directed to the impact of compulsory licensing
on standards and the pharmaceutical industry. During the standards session
we expect to review the FTC’s views regarding its Rambus, Qualcomm and
Princo decisions, the draft “Disposal Rules for Inclusion of Patents in
National Standards” by the China National Institute of Standardization, the
Taiwan Orange Book decision, the EC competition Guidelines and its ‘safe
harbors’ as well as discussion concerning green  technology. Panelists will
include representatives from various industries, academia and the
judiciary.
