NYIAC Virtual Talks: SEPs to Arbitration: “Can We Be FRANDS?”

20 July 2021
Hosted By: NYIAC

As licensing and associated disputes grow beyond national boundaries, we expect an increase in international arbitration (IA) dealing with these issues. Particularly with regard to intellectual property and licenses that involve patents essential for meeting high-tech standards, we foresee that conflicts will include licensing and value determination, as well as fair, reasonable, and nondiscriminatory (FRAND) challenges, competition issues, and balancing competing considerations. Join us for an interesting and wide-ranging discussion about the present and the future of this intersection between standard essential patents (SEPs), licensing, and IA.

Is global SEP FRAND peace possible through international arbitration? Join NERA Managing Director Dr. Christine Siegwarth Meyer, who will moderate a panel discussion, and hear insights from NERA Director Kristopher Boushie and Associate Director Dr. Sheng Li, along with Winston & Strawn Partners Aldo A. Badini and Susannah P. Torpey to learn more.
