A Sharing Session on Standard Essential Patents

Date : June 22, 2018 (Friday)
Time : 3:00pm-4:00pm
Venue : Room 603, Chow Yei Ching Building, HKU
Speaker : Mr. Derek Yeung, Patent Attorney, Loza & Loza

An essential patent or standard-essential patent (SEP) is a patent that claims an invention that must be used to comply with a technical standard. Standards organizations, therefore, often require member companies disclose and grant licenses to their patents and pending patent applications that cover a standard that the organization is developing. Determining which patents are essential to a particular standard can be complex. Standardisation organizations require licences of essential patents to be on fair, reasonable, and non-discriminatory (FRAND) terms. In this sharing session, Mr. Derek Yeung will share with us some current hot topics on standard essential patents.
