Speakers

Panitch Schwarze Belisario & Nadel partner Jeffrey W. Gluck participated in a presentation titled “Oracle v. Google—Getting More (or Less) Than You Licensed” during the 2019 midwinter meeting of the American Intellectual Property Law Association in Tampa, Florida.

Oracle America v Google is a series of related intellectual property law cases that have been making their way through the courts for nearly a decade.

The latest decision in the cases was issued by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit in spring 2018.

During the AIPLA program, Gluck discussed the cases’ implications for proprietary and open source software licensing.

An intellectual property attorney, Gluck focuses his practice on electrical and computer-related technologies.

He represents clients in a variety of areas, including patent counseling and opinions, licensing and transactions, interferences, patent prosecution, and re-examinations.

He assists with trial litigation and acted as lead attorney in appellate litigation.

Gluck worked as an engineer and researcher, a university professor and as a patent examiner in addition to his experience as a patent agent and patent attorney.

While focusing mainly on multi-user, digital, wireless and satellite communications, he also worked in the areas of signal processing and control systems.

Gluck is active in various bar association committees focusing on standards and open-source software.
