In "Is It Worth Anything? Using Surveys in Intellectual Property Cases," the authors discuss the relevance and prevalence of consumer surveys in trademark and patent infringement matters, with a focus on the use of conjoint analysis.

He will participate in the panel discussion, "What's the Damage?
