Associations battle on injuction provisions

Based on an article in Technology Daily, it appears that representatives of several associations met with Lamar S. Smith (R-TX) (Chairman of the House Subcommittee on the Courts, the Internet and Intellectual Property) on May 31 (or on May 24?).  The groups met to resolve differences on injunction provisions in the draft patent reform bill.
The data gathering / crunching / storage / distribution industry wants “to change the judiciary's practice of granting automatic injunctions against the distribution of products that are found to infringe on another's patents.”  Independent inventors, universities, and the pharmaceutical industry are aligned against this initiative.
It was reported that the Intellectual Property Owners' Association, the American Intellectual Property law Association, the Business Software Alliance, the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America and an association representing the biotechnology industry were in the meeting.
