Badia Fiesolana

A high-level debate on the licensing and litigation of standard essential patents, with 30 authors presenting 22 unpublished papers.

The Florence Seminar on Standard Essential Patents sets the stage for two days of lively academic discussion about FRAND licensing and SEP litigation topics.

22 unpublished papers, both legal and economics-related, will be discussed by prominent scholars in the field. The over 30 authors and co-authors will represent more than 20 university institutions from three continents.

A keynote by Michael Carrier ensures a solid trans-Atlantic perspective, while a roundtable by four industry representatives links the scientific issues to the market realities.

The main topics of discussion include:

  • Liability and property remedies for SEPs and proportionality defense
  • Jurisdiction issues of global SEP disputes
  • SEP hold-out vs hold-up
  • FRAND licensing levels in value chains
  • EU competition law and FRAND licensing
  • Geopolitics and international trade issues of SEPs
  • SEP transparency and essentiality checks
