The law of FRAND is constantly evolving. This panel will discuss best practices, strategies, and considerations in negotiating FRAND licenses to standard-essential patents and preparing for possible future litigation, especially in light of recent case law developments at the Federal Circuit and district courts. The discussion will cover such issues as due diligence into issues impacting the value and enforceability of asserted SEPs; how to satisfy FRAND obligations during the negotiation process; and how negotiations may impact possible future litigation.
