Following the pivotal decision on fair, reasonable, and non-discriminatory (FRAND) royalty rates for standard essential patent (SEP) in TCL v. Ericsson in 2017, patent holders and practitioners across the globe have regularly monitored significant updates and developments in this field. Proceedings and court decisions subsequent to TCL v. Ericsson gave them a glimpse of the ruling’s extent and effects on FRAND litigation.

This, as well as other key issues, emphasizes the need for practitioners to be abreast of the different legal and economic considerations in SEP and FRAND litigation.

In this Live Webcast, a panel of distinguished professionals and thought leaders will help patent holders and all affected professionals understand the important aspects of this significant topic. They will provide an in-depth discussion of SEP and FRAND litigation considering all key issues and developments. Speakers will also offer best practices and tips to ensure FRAND compliance and avoid pitfalls.

Key topics include:

• Overview of the TCL v. Ericsson Decision
• Key Court Decisions after TCL v. Ericsson
