5.30pm for 6pm start
Speakers: Christian Harmsen (Bird & Bird, Germany) and Jemima Stratford QC (Brick Court Chambers)
With one of its now customary rapid response events, AIPPI UK is delighted to welcome at very short notice two speakers who will be able to provide a fascinating insight into the recent decision of the Court of Justice in Huawei v. ZTE which considered the circumstances in which injunctive relief could be awarded in patent disputes involving standards essential patents (SEPs). Christian Harmsen acted for Huawei in Germany, whilst Jemima Stratford QC from the UK has an intimate knowledge of the competition-related aspects of FRAND disputes. Christian will provide some background to the case and how it is being perceived from a German perspective; this will be particularly insightful in view of the past Orange Book decisions of the German courts. Jemima will focus on the competition issues which were central to the case, and will also consider the possible impact on the UK courts.
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 issues in the case.
