The UK Supreme Court has agreed that in principle a global licence of Standard Essential Patents (SEPs) is fair, reasonable and non-discriminatory (FRAND) and that the English courts have jurisdiction to determine royalty rates and other terms of a global SEP licence. In its landmark recent judgment in Unwired Planet v Huawei, the Supreme Court ruled on how patented technology should be licensed to equipment manufacturers accessing telecommunications standards. Arty Rajendra, UK Head of IP Disputes at Osborne Clarke and co-counsel for the successful party, Unwired Planet, will be joined in conversation with Senior Associate Anna Rawlings to discuss how this affects telecoms operators and users of IoT.
Thursday 10 December | 9:00-9:30am
