Aims and objectives

Litigating Standard Essential Patents (SEPs) has become a hot topic in all major jurisdictions around the globe. Nowadays, due to the increasing importance of the Internet of things (IoT), networking and wireless communication (including connected cars, the smart home, Industry 4.0 and smart metering), it affects not only telecoms but also many other industries such as the automotive industry, the life sciences and consumer products.

However, national courts frequently handle specific issues related to SEP litigation very differently. Cases in point are how to deal with legal remedies (such as injunctive relief and damages), what is required of a patentee to successfully assert an SEP and how a fair, reasonable and non-discriminatory (FRAND) licence fee should be determined.

The one-day conference will give a detailed account of how SEP and FRAND issues are approached in the major jurisdictions such as the US, Europe and China.
Who should attend
Experienced senior judges, in-house counsels and attorneys will actively discuss the latest legal developments and the requirements for successful litigation in the various jurisdictions with participants.
