Position Statement on the Commission’s Proposal for a Regulation on Standard Essential Patents

The Position Statement of the Max Planck Institute for Innovation and Competition of 6 February 2024 on the Commission's Proposal for a Regulation on Standard Essential Patents, assesses the proposal in the light of its adequacy to address the challenges of SEP licensing in the context of the Internet of Things and its potential for contributing to a balanced global SEP licensing. Preceding these assessments, the Institute elaborates on the legal and economic foundations of an innovation-oriented standardisation and outlines the context in which major problems addressed by the Commission’s Proposal arise.
