On this webpage we have compiled the decisions of the German courts on standard essential patents for you. We have reduced these decisions to the FRAND-essential positions and offer them to you for download. The German patent jurisdiction is appreciated beyond the borders of Germany. For this reason, we would also like to give our English-speaking clients and colleagues the opportunity to take note of German FRAND-decisions. Accordingly, we have taken the time for you to translate these decisions into English.
We have not translated decisions that are similar in content or are dealt with at the respective Court of Appeal. However, in order to give you an overview of all FRAND-decisions of German Courts known to us, you will find a list of untranslated decisions at the end of this page.
