Virtual Event | The New Policy Statement on Standard-Essential Patents: A Move in the Wrong Direction?

This event will premiere on this page at 12:00 p.m. EST, Wednesday, February 2. Register for the event here.

Join Hudson Institute Senior Fellow Urška Petrovčič and expert panelists Andrei Iancu, David Kappos, and Maureen Ohlhausen for a discussion on the new Draft Policy Statement on Licensing Negotiations and Remedies for Standards-Essential Patents Subject to F/RAND Commitments.

On December 6, the Antitrust Division of the U.S. Department of Justice launched a consultation on a policy statement concerning patents essential to practice industry standards, such as the 5G standard. This would be the third policy statement issued by the agencies on this topic if adopted. What are the proposed revisions? Are they needed? What implications will this have for innovation and America’s ability to compete for global technological leadership? Please join Hudson Institute for this timely discussion.
