Standard essential patents (SEPs) are encumbered by a FRAND commitment. Does the English Court have jurisdiction to decide upon global FRAND given that foreign patents are part of the analysis? A discussion on the statement in Unwired Planet v Huawei that only a single FRAND rate exists for a given SEP. Is this correct if basic principles of bargaining theory show that multiple reasonable outcomes will occupy the bargaining range? A look at how the legal principles/ methodology for calculating FRAND will be applied in our Courts from here.
Each year the OIPRC hosts a number of leading academics from around the world as part of its Invited Speaker Series. These events typically run from 5:15-6:45pm on Thursday evenings at St. Peter’s College; if the venue or time is different, it will be noted on the Events calendar. The Speaker Series consists of a presentation of about 45 minutes, followed by a Q&A session with the assembled group of academic staff, students (both undergraduate and graduate), researchers, and interested members of the public. Discussion is informal and includes participants from several disciplines, with a wide range of prior knowledge.
Refreshments and snacks are served at the conclusion of the discussion. All are welcome.
