Antitrust Concerns with Standard-Setting Organizations: Promoting Competition While Protecting IP Rights

Overview


Stefan M. Meisner and William Díaz will present “Antitrust Concerns with Standard-Setting Organizations: Promoting Competition While Protecting IP Rights” at the Strafford live webinar. The panel will discuss the application of antitrust laws to SSOs, the competitive advantages associated with SEPs and how FRAND standards can balance the interests of SEP owners with other SSO participants.

Key questions will include:

  • What are the antitrust risks involved with SSOs and SEPs?
  • What actions constitute a “hold-up” and how do SSOs respond?
  • Is a SEP holder required to license its IP on a FRAND basis and if it does how are its enforcement rights limited?
  • What lessons can be learned from recent actions and guidance from DOJ and FTC?
