SEP Exclusive Dealing Showdown: FTC v. Qualcomm Preview
12 PM GMT
Filed in the final days of the last administration, the FTC’s litigation against Qualcomm is coming to a head. The case puts Qualcomm’s licensing of standard essential patents and its FRAND commitments on center stage as part of an alleged scheme to protect Qualcomm’s market position. Partial summary judgment arguments will be held on October 18, 2018, and the case is bound for trial on January 4, 2019. Join us as we discuss the issues that the parties and the court will be wrestling with in the case that’s sure to be the next hot topic in SEP enforcement conversations.
