Speakers: Lord Justice Floyd and Richard Vary
AIPPI UK is delighted to welcome some of the highest profile speakers in Lord Justice Floyd and Richard Vary of Nokia, who will give us an overview of how far the Courts of Europe and the US have come so far in interpreting the meaning of the FRAND obligation. Much of the focus in Europe has been on whether and in what circumstances a patentee who has undertaken to grant licences on FRAND terms may nonetheless obtain injunctive relief and Richard Vary will provide an overview of where we currently stand as we await the CJEU’s decision in Huawei v ZTE. Of equal importance is how the English Courts would go about determining what would be a FRAND rate for an essential patent or number of patents. Lord Justice Floyd will review the US cases which have sought to tackle this issue and reflect on any problems this approach might present to an English Court tasked with determining a FRAND rate.
There will be the opportunity to ask questions and drinks will be served afterwards.
This course is directed at all levels of practitioners with an interest in intellectual property and will provide them with an understanding of the current issues surrounding FRAND.
