Patent Masters Symposium – Standard Essential Patents: Striking a Balance Between Competition & Innovation

Patent Masters Symposium – Standard Essential Patents: Striking a Balance Between Competition & Innovation

Renaissance Arlington Capital View Hotel
Speaking Engagement

Standard Setting Organizations (SSOs) exist to identify and select the best innovations the entire industry will build upon. Those contributing patented technologies are asked to provide a FRAND assurance, in essence committing to provide access to Standard Essential Patents (SEPs) on a fair, reasonable and non-discriminatory basis.

SEPs represent pioneering innovation that the entire industry will build upon. They represent ubiquitous innovation, which creates many legal problems. This Patent Masters™ Symposium will explore SEPs by looking at SSO policies, government activity, litigation, industry licensing practices, FRAND and more.

WilmerHale Partner Timothy Syrett will speak on the panel “Disharmony Between DOJ, FTC & PTO on Antitrust Enforcement of Licensing of SEPs?”
