Over the past few years, the once-placid world of patent remedies has been thrown into upheaval.  Judicial decisions and pronouncements by enforcement agencies have both put pressure on traditional doctrines relating to damages, fee recovery and injunctive relief.  This symposium explored recent developments and the future trajectory of patent remedies law from a judicial, regulatory and legislative standpoint.
