Europe seen from space

How should the EU facilitate the licensing of SEPs? This seminar addresses the challenges that SEP licensing currently faces in the EU and beyond and the means by which the EU could seek to resolve the issues through its policy actions. It evaluates the current initiatives put forward and considers how the European Commission, national courts and the CJEU can facilitate the licensing of SEPs in a way that secures innovators incentives to innovate and effective access to SEPs by implementers.
