Navigating Unique Challenges Of Cross-Border SEP and FRAND Litigation: What Patent Holders and Implementers Need To Know About Anti-Suit Injunctions, Unwilling Licensees, Component-Level Licenses, and Coordinating Multi-Jurisdictional Litigation.
The licensing of standard essential patents is a global issue which requires an understanding of the different jurisdictions in play. In this session, participants will gain an understanding of decisions in Unwired Planet v. Huawei and Huawei v. ZTE; developments related to anti-suit injunctions and anti-anti-suit injunctions as seen in cross-border cases like Lenovo v. IPCom, Continental/Daimler v. Nokia, Conversant/Huawei; an understanding of the unwilling licensee as seen in cases like TQ Delta v. ZyXel; as well as knowledge of supply chain issues and related obligations to grant component-level SEP licenses. Join litigators from the United States and United Kingdom as we discuss these trends and more through the lens of recent case law while illustrating key features of alternative jurisdictions including the U.S., UK, Germany, France, the Netherlands, and Brazil.
This webinar is part of “Conversations on Cross-Border IP Protection and Enforcement,” a three-part seminar hosted by Robins Kaplan LLP and Lewis Silkin LLP on April 13, 20, and 27, 2021.
