Understand how to prepare, prosecute, develop, and litigate standards-essential patents.
Technical standards, particularly for information and communications technology (ICT) industries, require use of patented technologies, as reflected by continuing growth in Wi-Fi and cellular standards. This trend will only increase as new or next-generation standards are developed for the Internet of Things, and yet unforeseen applications. Understanding issues relating to the use of patented technologies in technical standards is more important now for patent practitioners than ever before. Patents and Standards: Practice, Policy, and Enforcement is the definitive resource in this area and a must-have book for any patent practitioner working in the standards field.
Patent prosecutors will use the book to understand the standard process and advise clients on strategies for patent preparation, prosecution, and portfolio development in the standards area. Patent litigators will use this book to understand the unique issues regarding enforcement of standards-essential patents (SEPs). In-house counsel who want to build more valuable SEP portfolios will use this book to develop portfolios, create effective licensing programs, and manage outside counsel.
Part I looks at the history, organizations, and policy considerations involved in setting standards. Part II offers best practices for patent prosecution and portfolio development for standards-related technology, including interfacing with engineers, portfolio development, preparation of SEPs, claiming strategies, and prosecution in the U.S. and other countries. Part III examines licensing and litigation issues for patents and standards, including FRAND licensing, antitrust issues, and litigation forum selection and remedies. Contributing authors provide their perspectives on the key issues in this complicated and contentious area, and offer practical guidance, charts, tables, timelines, practice tips, and more.
