Topic Information

In May 2010, Apple filed a patent lawsuit against HTC claiming that HTC's Android phone infriged its patent. This lawsuit triggered a series of patent lawsuits regarding Android phone, which is followed by the heated discussion about software patent in Free and Open Source Software (FOSS). Taiwan, as a leading mobile devices and hardwares manufacturing economy, is deeply affected. Therefore, OSSF arranged this legal workshop and invited experts who will address on the patent issues in FOSS upon these cases.

This workshop will start with a brief patent introduction by Jyh-An Lee, assistant professor at College of Law, National Chengchi University (NCCU), in Chinese. The keynote speaker will be Keith Bergelt, CEO of Open Invention Network (OIN). Mr. Bergelt will share his rich experience in open source innovation, patent, and the relevant Android issues, which will cover patent topics concerned by FOSS participants. OIN is a professional organisation dedicated to Linux patent safeguard. OIN made a patent pool through acquisition, donation acceptance and cross licensing to protect the development of Linux Kernel and related industry. Mr. Bergelt has devoted himself in IP for decades. He is quite familiar with patent field and constantly expresses his insight in patent issues.

A 30-minute Q&A is scheduled after Mr. Bergelt’s talk. For deeper discussion, participants can join our luncheon at Cafe Sinica (中研院福華哲思軒). The approximate charge will be NT 250, 450, 500, and 550. [Click here]
