Enforcement actions and Qualcomm: What do they mean for patent owners and patent licensing?
12 PM EST
Antitrust agencies in China, Japan and South Korea have issued decisions against Qualcomm -- the wireless telecommunications chip maker -- concerning its patent-licensing practices. Investigations are pending in the U.S. and European Union. This program will compare and contrast the agencies' different legal theories toward Qualcomm. It will consider if there are broader policy implications of these actions. For example, what might these actions signal about how agencies think about standard-essential patents and FRAND, and how might their actions impact patent owners in the future?
