New service offered by Kather Augenstein – the FRAND data base
Since the ECJ decision in the case Huawei vs. ZTE in summer 2015, the German patent litigation courts have issued numerous decisions applying the ECJ’s requirements in SEP proceedings. The wealth of detail of German decisions is not necessarily known abroad.
In order to give everyone interested a comprehensive overview of the development of FRAND jurisprudence in Germany, we have compiled the most important decisions and published them on our homepage under
As a special service, it is also possible to access English translations of individual decisions on the site. Especially the translations might be very useful to get a deeper understanding of the German case law.
If you have any further questions about SEP schemes and FRAND strategies, please do not hesitate to contact us with our expertise.
