What's Happened in the Past Year? Licensing and Litigating SEPs, RAND and FTC v. Qualcomm
Thursday, September 12, 2019
101 Montgomery Street, Suite 2100
San Francisco, CA 94104
Licensing standards-essential patents is big business. However, parties often cannot agree on a RAND royalty rate. Thus, many important cases concerning RAND are decided in the courts. An expert panel will summarize, compare and contrast recent U.S, European and Asian RAND court decisions to date, including guidance for negotiation behavior, license structure, royalty rates, essentiality determinations, reasonableness, and (non-)discrimination. We will conclude with a discussion of the recent, groundbreaking (and controversial) FTC v. Qualcomm case that has sent shockwaves through the industry.
