Lexology Webinar: Stay ahead in SEP litigation – FRAND update Europe

Recent months have seen several prominent court decisions on standard essential patents (SEP) and fair, reasonable and non-discriminatory (FRAND) licensing. SEP owners and implementers alike must adapt their licensing and litigation strategies accordingly.

Dr. Christof Augenstein and Benjamin Rätz will provide you with the latest know-how on Europe’s SEP litigation landscape in a free online seminar, offered in cooperation with Lexology, on

Thursday, 19 November 2020, 5:00 PM – 6:00 PM (CET).

Covered topics will include:

  • case law updates for the United Kingdom and Germany;
  • strategic considerations for SEP owners on forum selection;
  • litigation-proof practices for licensing negotiations; and
  • lessons for automotive litigation – ‘licence to all’ versus ‘access to all’.

Participants are also encouraged to send in any questions or specific topics of interest beforehand. We will make sure to address them in the webinar. The Seminar will use GoToWebinar as software.
