Panel Overview

As debate continues across a range of industries as to what constitutes as Fair, Reasonable and Non-Discriminatory (FRAND) in SEP licensing, in house IP leadership face significant risk to their portfolio in the form of legal challenges from licensees. Maintaining an SEP license portfolio, and in turn ensuring that any licenses that you are party to follow FRAND principles, is a cornerstone to the strategy of many industry leaders.

This session will discuss:

  • Avoiding litigation to reduce costs and risk to your portfolio
  • Setting the scope and parameters of licenses
  • How to calculate FRAND rates in a volatile and changing market
