          UC Hastings Faculty in the News: Professors Feldman, Little, Miyazawa

          A regular feature of the UC Hastings Engaged Scholarship blog highlighting recent media hits, citations, and quotes.

          Professor Robin Feldman is once again dominating the news media cycle with insightful commentary about patent law: "Enter Professor Robin Feldman, who has become the preeminent researcher on issues of patent litigation, particularly as it refers to so-called patent monetizers. Professor Feldman has found striking new data on patent trolling and the effects of the America Invents Act, which to me suggests that the AIA has clearly been successful in its intended goal of reducing the number of defendants in a single patent infringement litigation."

          “That said, permissive employment laws certainly helped, says UC Hastings professor Robin Feldman, who believes it's better for companies to spend their time on innovation, rather than squabbling over contracts and licenses in the courtroom. She points out that since patent enforcement is reaching a fever pitch, tech giants like Apple and Samsung are throwing buckets of money into litigation, when they could be devoting all of it to research and develop new products.”

          "Robin Feldman, director of the UC-Hastings Institute for Innovation Law, has already announced that she will testify."

          “It doesn’t feel good, it doesn’t look good,” said Rory Little, professor of legal ethics at the University of California Hastings School of Law in San Francisco. “A chief law enforcement officer should avoid contacts like that. Based on what we know, it sounds like she made a mistake.”

          Professor Setsuo Miyazawa, Japan's most prominent socio-legal scholar, will speak on legal reforms in Japan, Friday, October 25, at UC Santa Cruz, "Japan's Legal Reform and Its Socio-Political Significance and Legal Ramification in Today's East Asia.” Miyazawa has been active in the promotion of judicial reform in Japan and is the most prominent proponent of the introduction of American-style graduate professional law schools in Japan. He founded the Collaborative Research Network in East Asian Law & Society, which now has a journal, Asian Journal of Law & Society.
