Licensing Executives Society, Washington, D.C Chapter

Speaking Engagement | June.20.2017 | 12pm - 1pm (Eastern Daylight Time)

Washington, D.C.

On Tuesday, June 20, Orrick partner Jay Jurata will give a presentation to the D.C. Chapter of the Licensing Executives Society about the challenges and opportunities raised by recent developments regarding standards-essential patents.

Over the past four years, numerous court decisions and regulatory actions around the globe have provided some insight into the meaning of voluntary commitments to license patents on “fair, reasonable and non-discriminatory” terms. Yet many questions remain unresolved. Jay will discuss areas of emerging consensus, open issues, and what that means for both licensors and potential licensees of standard-essential patents.
