Essential Patents and the Agencies - Incentives to Standardize
1 PM EST
We plan to discuss the claim that some technology contributors to SSOs have made suggesting they would limit their participation in standard setting because they are concerned that SEPs are becoming less valuable, whether the antitrust agencies’ policies or recent court decisions have impacted incentives for companies to participate in SSOs (and if so, what those implications are for consumers), whether innovation has been affected (and what the consumer welfare effects will be of reduced participation in SSOs), and what steps can or should SSOs (or companies) take in response.
