Connectivity technology will not only connect smartphones, tablets and computers but every device or object across many industry verticals linking other vehicles, trucks, traffic lights, machines, TVs, smart metres or medical devices. Technology standards such as 4G, 5G, Wi-Fi, HEVC, VVC and many more will enable connectivity that heavily relies on standards subject to standard essential patents (SEPs). SEP-related global royalty income was estimated at over $20 billion in 2021 and will likely increase in the next years when standards subject to SEPs are implemented widely across industries. Consequently, most SEP holders will actively monetize and enforce their SEP portfolios. But what is a reasonable royalty for a SEP portfolio and how should standards implementers and SEP holders navigate the risks of SEP licensing and SEP litigation?

Join Gene Quinn, patent attorney and Founder of, on Tuesday, October 11, 2022, at 12 PM ET, for a wide-ranging conversation about How to Navigate the Risks of SEP Licensing and SEP Litigation. Joining the conversation will be Josue Ortiz-Ramirez, Partner with the IP Advisory at Deloitte, Claus Melarti, Senior Vice President of Acquisitions at RPX Corporation, Brian Hinman, Chief Commercial Officer at Aon IP Solutions, and Dr. Tim Pohlmann, Managing Director of IPlytics GmbH.
