Welcome to Skilled in the Art. I’m Law.com IP reporter Scott Graham. Remember last summer when the University of California announced it was teaming with Longford Capital to stop the import of infringing filament LED lightbulbs into this country? Well, after six months of litigation employing seemingly the entire AmLaw 200, the university … withdrew its ITC complaint last week against Amazon, Walmart and Target. The university says it’s still going after IKEA at the ITC and the other retailers in district court, plus it says it’s licensed a bunch of other retailers along the way. But it sounds like less than a decisive victory. I’ve got details below. Meanwhile, DOJ is once again trying to block Sheppard Mullin Richter & Hampton from making an antitrust case out of alleged FRAND breaches, and Cooley and Wilson Sonsini have new IP partners.

As always, you can email me your feedback and follow me on Twitter.
