Brown Bag-Seminar: Economics of Standard Development and Licensing Standard-Essential Patents

Robin Stitzing (Nokia Technologies)

Max-Planck-Institut für Innovation und Wettbewerb, München, Raum 313

We provide a practitioner's view on the economics of licensing standard-essential patents and related issues of standard development. Based on a presentation of the paper "Over-Declaration of Standard Essential Patents and Determinants of Essentiality", recent industry developments, contrast practical experiences, and the economic literature will be discussed, and potential topics for future research will be raised. Timo Ali-Vehmas, Nokia head of ecosystems research and former VP, compatibility and industry collaboration, will join for the presentation.
