Director Ryan C. Richardson presented and moderated a panel discussion of the latest thinking on Standard Essential Patents (SEPs) Covering 5G Networks at the Standard Essential Patents Strategy Conference on September 10, 2019, in Brussels, Belgium. Ryan’s presentation, “5G: Standard Essential Patents in Ultrafast-Communication Networks,” addressed some of the most pressing issues relating to 5G SEPs, including:

  • Will SEPs help or hurt the rollout and widespread adoption of 5G/IoT?
  • With 5G/IoT expanding the reach of SEPs (beyond telcom), how will these new industries react to having to deal with SEPs for the first time?
  • How can we make licensing of SEPs directed towards 5G/IoT more efficient?
  • How can we provide a proper valuation for SEPs directed towards 5G/IoT?
  • SEP patent pools
