[Panel 4] Standard Essential Patents and Antitrust (Part 2)

Friday, June 28, 2019 - 2:00pm to 3:00pm
Panel Description: 

Patent practitioners may be less aware of the economic forces at work in the operation of the patent system than of the technical or legal aspects. Policy makers also may fail to understand such dynamics. Yet, they are crucial to efficient operation of the patent system as well as proper adherence to the rule of law. This panel will explore such economics at the interface of patent and competition law, including the proper role of the Federal Trade Commission and competition and antitrust law as limiting patent rights and their enforcement, especially in the context of standard essential patents and related FRAND obligations.
