The Relationship Between Standards Development, Patents and Antitrust

Antitrust laws seek to encourage competition and stamp out anti-competitive behavior, with many theories and laws developed over time to largely regard industry cooperation as inherently anti-competitive.

High Stakes Multinational Standard Essential Patent Litigation

Patent owners are increasingly considering more complex strategies when pursuing implementers who refuse to take a license, or sometimes even refuse to enter into serious licensing discussions.
