The September-October issue of IP Litigator’s “Supreme Court Report” published an article by IP litigation partners Kevin Post and Steven Pepe (both of New York) and IP litigation counsel Samuel Brenner (Boston) that discusses the U.K. Supreme Court ruling that permits standard-essential patent holders to require worldwide Fair, Reasonable, and Non-Discriminatory (FRAND) licenses in the telecommunications industry. The authors note that the U.K. Supreme Court decision is most important for its holding that English courts can set the terms for global licenses of telecommunications SEPs.
