Professor Daryl Lim, director of the Center for Intellectual Property, Information & Privacy Law at The John Marshall Law School, has been invited to speak at the Next Generation of Antitrust Scholars Conference at New York University School of Law. His submission was selected through a competitive process by a panel of senior antitrust scholars.
In previous years, presenters have included faculty from the University of Chicago, Columbia University, the University of Michigan, University of Toronto, University of Notre Dame, Vanderbilt University, University College London and Hong Kong University. Lim will deliver his paper on patent holdups at the conference on Jan. 22.
Lim is considered to be among one of the young leaders in the fields of antitrust and patent law. His book Patent Misuse and Antitrust Law: Empirical, Doctrinal and Policy Perspectives, has been lauded in World Competition Law and Economics Review, a leading journal focusing on competition law.
His book has been cited to the U.S. Supreme Court by lawyers for both sides in their briefs in Kimble v. Marvel Enterprises, Inc., a case concerning post-expiration patent royalty payments. He has written 15 articles and spoken at more than 35 conferences.
His work also has been cited in a number of reports, including those by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) and the Canadian government. He became director of John Marshall’s intellectual property program in 2015.
