Partner Pat Treacy will be a panellist at a joint LSE-IPKat webinar, focusing on the interplay between patent law and competition law, as well as exploring the issues arising from the licensing of standard-essential patents (SEPs).
The panel will delve into the big questions before the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) in the Nokia v Daimler referral from the Düsseldorf court. The event will be building the blocks of the issues in the referral from the ground up – starting with the manufacturing realities, and building up to the licensing and litigation realities, before asking (and even answering) the questions that will be before the CJEU. The panel will discuss this upcoming case and wider SEP issues framed by the following specific topics:
- Manufacturing realities
- Commercial realities
- Legal realities
- Economic realities and
- What are the referred questions to the CJEU in Nokia v Daimler and how do they relate to the above a-d?
There will be opportunities for Q&As at the end of the session.
