Experts from Europe, Japan, the UK, and the US share global and country-jurisdiction experiences on negotiating “fair, reasonable, and non-discriminatory” (FRAND) licenses for the use of “standard essential patents” (SEPs)—for smart phones, smart cars, and other digital products and services. Current and evolving mechanisms to achieve FRAND licenses will be discussed—ranging from incentives for closing deals by amicable negotiation, court-imposed remedies like injunctions, royalty rate-setting, and damages, to alternative dispute resolution like mediation and arbitration. Meanwhile, the panel will address views on SEPs debated within various government authorities, with examples from Japan.
