IPO ANNUAL MEETING PROGRAM FEATURES SESSION ON GLOBAL RATE-SETTING FOR STANDARDS-ESSENTIAL PATENTS
Register for IPO’s LIVE + Virtual Annual Meeting and attend a session on “Global Rate-Setting for Standards-Essential Patents.” This session, organized by IPO’s Damages & Injunctions, Standards Setting, and International Patent Law Committees, will address global rate-setting for standards-essential patents (SEPs) and the use of anti-suit injunctions. Speakers include STEVE AKERLEY (InterDigital Holdings, Inc.), BRETT BACHTELL (Qualcomm Incorporated), YING LUO (Shanghai Lung Tin Law Firm), and EMAN SOJOODI (Dell Technologies). The panel will be moderated by PROF. DR. TILMAN MÜLLER-STOY (Bardehle Pagenberg Partnerschaft MbB).
The panel will discuss the role of national courts in setting global FRAND rates for standards-essential patent portfolios and in adjudicating damages for patent infringement, where the asserted patents are part of a portfolio whose FRAND value is under consideration by another national court. They will also address the related use of anti-suit and anti-interference injunctions to preclude parties from invoking the jurisdiction of other courts to address overlapping subject matter. This panel will present live in Texas on September 20 and the session will re-air virtually on September 28. For more information or to register, visit www.ipo.org/AM2021.
