In fall 2012, Professor Joshua Sarnoff presented on intellectual property and climate change as part of a panel on intellectual property and international law at the annual meeting of the American Branch of the International Law Association in New York City.
Professor Sarnoff also presented on the recent Supreme Court patent case in Mayo v. Prometheus and the Myriad gene patent case, for which the Supreme Court just granted certiorari, as part of a panel with the lawyer representing Myriad at the National Association of College and University Attorney’s fall 2012 workshop in Washington, D.C. In January, he will be filing a law professor’s brief in the case. Professor Sarnoff made a presentation on these cases on a panel at the Indiana University’s Robert H.
