Description

The development and licensing of Standard Essential Patents (SEPs) underpin so many aspects of modern life – from wireless telephony to Wi-Fi, to connected cars, and the internet of things – that it is very easy to underappreciate the complexity of rules and practices governing SEPs. As the speed of technology convergence increases more and more sectors are adopting standards-based technologies for connectivity and interoperability. For licensors and licensees alike, it is now more important than ever to be informed of not only the facts but the necessary behaviors required to navigate the risks. Pulling together technology management, intellectual property, business, economics, and politics, the rules for SEPs is one of the most interdisciplinary fields of law.

This seminar is designed for IP attorneys, licensing professionals and technologists interested in gaining valuable insights into the why and how of SEP development and licensing. It will be taught by a renown former jurist, a respected licensing executive, and innovative IP strategist who each will bring their perspectives to bear on this fascinating field.
