  • (1888PressRelease) June 12, 2018 - This event is scheduled on June 13, 2018 from 3:00 PM to 4:00 PM (ET).

    Event Synopsis:
    International efforts and heightened enforcement actions that address legal issues surrounding Standard Essential Patents (SEPs) are continuously taking place as SEPs remain to be one of the most debated topic in the antitrust industry. Just recently, as part of the new Antitrust Guidelines, the U.S Department of Justice (DOJ) and the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) specifically stated that licensing of SEPs should be covered by the same general principles as other patent licensing. In contrast, the EU commission has published its communication that sets out a general, non-binding framework on their approach to SEPs. Similar efforts to implement a standard that is aimed at protecting patented technologies, are also seen in other developing countries.

    In this LIVE Webcast, a panel of thought leaders and professionals brought together by The Knowledge Group will provide the audience with an in-depth analysis of the fundamentals as well as recent updates in SEP licensing. Speakers will present key trends and regulatory developments that will impact the SEP landscape. They will also identify best practices and practical tips to avoid potential risks and pitfalls.

    Key topics include:
    The SEP Framework
    Constraints and Opportunities
    SEPs Licensing Trends in Other Developing Countries
    Remarkable Court Decisions
    Challenges in Licensing SEPs
    Common Risks and Pitfalls
    Trends, Updates and Developments in 2018
