Tell me more...

From Apple, IBM, Qualcomm, ZTE, and Huawei, we take a look back at some of the biggest patent cases of 2019 and unpick them to identify the key lessons we can learn and take into 2020... 

In this webinar, the cases we unpick represent some of the hottest technological and scientific developments, plus how politics is playing a role in destabilizing a 40-year-old European court project. We explore cases that have changed the game across:

  1. The battle for 5G. 5G licensing battles are only just beginning, with interventions by the Federal Trade Commission likely to play a big part.  
  2. FRAND debates and SEPs. Determining key issues and setting the scene for future litigation over SEPs and FRAND licensing will be key in 2020.
  3. SPC headaches. Supplementary protection certificates (SPCs) are causing more headaches for patents owners, especially in the pharma and biotech industries. What happens next?
