[Panel 6] WG9 Framework for Analysis of Standard-Essential Patent (SEP) and Fair, Reasonable, and Non-Discriminatory (FRAND) Issues (Stage Two)

Date: 
Thursday, March 28, 2019 - 4:15pm to 5:30pm
Panel Description: 

WG9 published for public comment “Stage One” of its Framework for Analysis of SEP/FRAND Issues in February 2018 to address certain issues specific to alleged standard-essential patents (SEPs) and to consider the effects of commitments made to license patents on fair, reasonable, and non-discriminatory (FRAND) terms in infringement suits. This “Stage Two” WG9 drafting team continues this effort, addressing numerous additional topics in the SEP/FRAND context including:

  • Comparable Licenses
  • Royalty Base and Apportionment
  • Other FRAND Royalty Approaches; and
  • Other Considerations

[note: WG9 will further form a “Stage Three” drafting team addressing SEP/FRAND issues from a global perspective, consisting of experienced practitioners experienced in SEP/FRAND litigation in various patent regimes around the world.]
