Connectivity standards will change the world as we know it. Standards such as 5G or Wi-Fi 6 will connect devices, machines, cars, and even entire factories on the Internet of Things (IoT). Companies that own standard essential patents (SEPs) will not only shape the future of connectivity but have the means to monetize and enforce SEPs since any implementer of patented standards such as 5G, Wi-Fi 6 or video codec must pay royalties or otherwise compensate the use of patented technology standards.
SEPs are important bargaining chips to negotiate licensing deals across industries to enter new markets, to control supply chains, to litigate, and to acquire and sell assets. To have a seat at the FRAND negotiation table and ensure a sustainable and successful IP strategy in markets where patents and standards matter, decision makers must have all information at hand to fully understand the complex landscape of standardized technology. In this 3-part webinar series, we are connecting these dots for patent and standards data.
The 2nd part talks about SEP Licensing, Transaction and Litigation and covers the following:
• How can I be sure I have the advantage in SEP negotiations?
• What SEPs and from whom should I buy/license?
• How can I monitor the changing SEP ownership and litigation landscape?
• How can I quantify legal risk and identify potential SEP litigation early on?
