Huawei-ZTE: The Quintessential European Essential Patents Decision?
12 PM EDT
On July 16, 2015, the European Court of Justice handed down a much-anticipated decision in Huawei v. ZTE addressing whether seeking an injunction on a standard-essential patent (SEP) can be an abuse of dominance under Article 102 of the TFEU. The Court outlined circumstances in which pursuit of an injunction on a SEP may be problematic. This decision adds to a growing body of case law in which courts grapple with the tension at the intersection of competition and intellectual property laws. Our panel of enforcers, in-house counsel, and law firm practitioners on both sides of the Atlantic will discuss the meaning and implications of this important decision.
