Workshop 4

Regulatory & Legislative Trends Affecting Standard Essential Patents (SEPs)

While court decisions are having a significant impact on Standard Essential Patents (SEPs), so too are the policy shifts of various governments.  This panel will explore recent and predicted regulatory and legislative trends impacting owners and implementers of standard essential patents (SEPs), in the United States, Europe, as well as globally.  Specific topics to be explored include: current DOJ and USPTO policy regarding the determination of proper relief for SEP infringement; proposals to create standard essential royalty courts in the US and other legislation being considered by the U.S. Congress; essentiality checks; standardization strategies; as well as anti-suit injunctions and global FRAND rates.  The panelists will seek to balance the perspectives of patent owners and technology implementers.
