10 Things to Know Before You Go to Trial in Waco

  • Author/Instructor:  BCLT

Description: Despite all of the recent press, the Western District of Texas is a relatively recent entrant into the world of high-volume patent litigation.  And through all that press, it is easy to forget that Judge Albright and Waco are seeing their first series of patent trials.  Don't be fooled--you Eastern District experience does not matter.  What do trial attorneys need to know? And what should in-house counsel be asking about as trial approaches?  And maybe the most important question of all, what should in-house counsel be thinking about earlier in their cases in order to get ready for trial if it does occur. For anyone overseeing a patent litigation in the Western District, this is a session that will help you ask the right questions.  Speakers: Bradley Coburn, Winston & StrawnAhtoosa Amini Dale, Winston & StrawnBarry Shelton, Winston & Strawn

26th Annual BCLT/BTLJ Symposium: The Emergent Right to Repair - Competition Issues

  • Author/Instructor:  BCLT

In years past, consumers didn’t think twice about taking a broken car or toaster to a local repair shop or even fixing it themselves. But with today’s software-enabled products, consumers can no longer take those options for granted. In response to legal and technological restrictions, a growing movement advocating a right to repair has emerged, despite pushback from some quarters. The right to repair is at the center of a key policy debate. The Biden Administration and a unanimous FTC recently voiced support for competition and consumer choice in repair markets. Legislation under consideration in dozens of states would facilitate consumer and third-party repair. And regulators around the world have begun to embrace the repair agenda. But manufacturers and device makers remain skeptical of an unfettered right to repair, citing concerns over intellectual property rights, reliability, security, and lost revenue. This symposium will consider the complex, overlapping set of policy questions at the center of the repair debate. How do restrictions on repair, or their elimination, affect competition? How might policymakers resolve potential tensions between the right to repair and the intellectual property rights of device makers? Would the consumer benefits of open repair markets outweigh their risks? And what legislative solutions or other policy interventions are best-suited to address these questions?

Are Courthouses Male or Female? Designing for Inclusion: How Courthouse Design Affects Community Confidence (...)

  • Author/Instructor:  BJI

Are Courthouses Male or Female? Designing for Inclusion: How Courthouse Design Affects Community Confidence in the Delivery of JusticeU.S. Magistrate Judge Celeste F. Bremer (IASD, Recall) and California architect Susan Oldroyd  FAIA, will show how types of Courthouse interior and exterior designs and their art influence our understanding of the Court’s role in the community. They will identify features that you may no longer notice, but that represent barriers to the delivery of Equal Justice For All. Do Courthouses read as Male or Female? How do implicit biases affect our impressions of whether a Courthouse provides safety, transparency, accessibility, reconciliation, or retribution? What messages about inclusion does your Courthouse design send to public and staff? The style, material, and layout of Courthouses signal that are they fortresses or welcoming spaces. Courthouses have been targets of recent social unrest. Can Courthouses provide communities with space for understanding how Justice is done, while engaging in civil discourse about change? Courthouses represent community values such as stability and consistency; they are places of retribution and rehabilitation. Courthouse design should show society’s values of fairness and transparency, and allow for participation by all.  How we design, construct, and operate Courthouses sends a message to our communities about our values. Through Courthouse design and operation, can we be more intentional about the importance of the Rule of Law, and how the justice system operates? This course does not offer CLE credit.

Autonomous Vehicles & Privacy – Germany, EU & the U.S.

  • Author/Instructor:  BCLT

Description: In part 2 of our autonomous vehicle series, Allen & Overy discusses the connection between autonomous vehicles and data privacy, a fast-growing area of the law that governs information that is linked to specific individuals.  The instructors explore the data collection capabilities of cars and the differing consumer reactions to those capabilities, including the fear of government use of the data for fines and enforcement purposes.  Will these consumer feelings drive proactive policies, like those developing in Europe, or will they lead to reactionary policies once problems are exposed.  Our instructors explore these questions along with regulatory realities in differing U.S. states.   Speakers: Catharina Glugla, Paul Keller & William Wray, Allen & Overy

Berkeley IP Tech and Law Month: Copyright Law Year in Review

  • Author/Instructor:  BCLT

Broad, meandering CLE programming can be a waste of time – a waste that most busy practitioners cannot afford.

To get that knowledge to you, Berkeley Law and the Berkeley Center for Law & Technology (BCLT) have created Berkeley IP & Tech Month with over 30 highly-focused, year-in-review webinars. In these sessions, you can hear experts — many of whom are Berkeley Law instructors — explain the key cases from the prior year and their relevance. Pick the handful of sessions that matter to you and attend virtually. These are not your typical CLE courses. They are highly-focused sessions that are curated through Berkeley Law. Our instructors and faculty are the cornerstone of this program and, with over 60 tech and IP-focused instructors, that’s a lot of expertise.

Book Talk: Climate Change, Sustainable Development and Cleantech: A Pathway for Developing Countries (Joy Xiang)

  • Author/Instructor:  BCLT

In her book, Joy Y. Xiang promotes both global cleantech development and international cleantech transfer for climate action and sustainable development. The author proposes all countries build domestic cleantech innovation wherever possible. The book examines what it takes to build domestic cleantech innovation and outlines a pathway for developing countries to march toward it.  The pathway includes international aid, mutually beneficial international cleantech cooperation and domestic cleantech innovation. Xiang proposes that countries build domestic cleantech innovation by, for example, sending clear policy signals indicating the country’s long-term commitment toward cleantech innovation. Xiang also suggests countries employ diverse innovation tools such as customized cleantech IPR regimes, various subsidies such as prizes, innovation commons and competition law and regulations. The author observes that IP protection for cleantech is necessary for attracting international cleantech transfer. Developing countries may use available mechanisms in competition law and IP laws to address anticompetitive use of cleantech IPR.

BTLJ-CMTL-BCLT Symposium | Race & Technology Law: Innovating Health Equity

  • Author/Instructor:  BCLT

The nexus of technology and the law has played a major role in amplifying racial injustices in many of society’s institutions. The global COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated pre-existing racial disparities in medicine, shedding light on the ways in which technology and the law impact equitable access to healthcare. But technology and the law can also be instruments for structural change. As future lawyers, the student leaders of the Berkeley Technology Law Journal (BTLJ) and the Coalition of Minorities in Tech Law (CMTL) are eager to examine race, health equity, and the effects of technological innovation on communities of color. Therefore, we are convening this special symposium with the Berkeley Center for Law and Technology (BCLT). Last fall, the first annual BTLJ-BCLT Race & Technology Law Symposium broached a variety of tech law topics as they intersect with race. This year, the Symposium focuses on how race, technology, and the law intersect in the healthcare space. We have invited leading and rising legal academics to share their research and perspectives on the intersection of technology, law, and race within the American healthcare system. In conversation with one another, they will help us explore and propose options for anti-racist paths forward for the fields of technology law and healthcare. We have entitled this symposium: “Race & Technology Law: Innovating Health Equity.” Our panels will highlight a variety of tech law topics as they intersect with race and healthcare. A few of these topics include: -Access to healthcare innovation -Telehealth medicine -Reproductive rights -Eugenics and CRISPR-Cas9 technology Speakers: Sharona Hoffman, Edgar A.

China Stakes Out Its Place in Plant Variety Protection: An Update with Experts on PVP and Agricultural IP Developments (...)

  • Author/Instructor:  BCLT

China Stakes Out Its Place in Plant Variety Protection: An Update with Experts on PVP and Agricultural IP Developments in China Article 14 Any plant variety in respect of which variety rights are granted shall have the characteristic of novelty. Novelty means that the propagating material of the new plant variety in respect of which variety rights are applied for has not been sold prior to the filing date of the application, or has not been for sale, with the consent of the breeder, for more than one year within the territory of China; the propagating material of vines, forest trees, fruit trees and ornamental plants must not have been for sale for more than six years, or the propagating material of other plant varieties for more than four years, in a foreign territory. As always please consult counsel for specific legal advice. Since China established its legal regime for the protection of new varieties of plants in 1997, it has emerged as the country with the largest number of plant variety applications in the world, as well as the most litigious.  China’s current plant variety regime focuses on policy and legislative initiatives, including work on a new Seed Law by the National People’s Congress. Its plant variety protection enforcement efforts also reflect many of the reforms already undertaken in other areas of IP law, including: providing for punitive damages, burden of proof reversals and exceptions and limitations to infringement. Yet, China has yet to accede to UPOV ’91, the latest version of the WIPO treaty to protect plant varieties.  To what extent does China’s plant variety IP regime address China’s twin goals of becoming an agricultural innovator and meeting the food security needs of its vast population? We will explore the public policy implications of China’s efforts to become a major force in new plant varieties, the technical aspects of China’s emerging plant variety regime, and how these changes fit into China’s overall IP practice.

China: A Patent Linkage Update

  • Author/Instructor:  BCLT

Description China committed to a patent linkage (Hatch-Waxman) regime linking pharmaceutical regulatory approval and patent infringement determinations in the Phase 1 Trade Agreement concluded with the United States in January 2020. The linkage regime is part of a series of pharmaceutical IP related reforms set forth in that Agreement. With the enactment of China’s revised patent law, as well as the adoption of new rules on patent linkage on July 4, 2021 and a new Judicial Interpretation on July 5, 2021, the basic legislative framework for China’s new patent linkage regime is now in place. But how will these new rules work in practice?

Contemporary Lessons on Judging and Justice from the Holocaust

  • Author/Instructor:  BJI

Join us for a program exploring the role of judges and the courts during the Holocaust and the relevance that experience has for judges today.

And yet the overwhelming majority did not. What lessons does that experience provide for judges and courts today? Open to all, and of particular interest to judges, the program will consider: key historical context and lessons current relevance for judges BJI Executive Director Judge Jeremy Fogel will be joined by Dr. Will Meinecke of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum to discuss the history of the judiciary during the Holocaust; Judge Fogel and United States District Judge Rya Zobel will discuss the relevance of that history for judges today.

First NFT Trademark Litigations

  • Author/Instructor:  BCLT

Description: A new litigation area—NFTs, virtual goods, and trademark litigation—What does brand protection look like in the virtual world, and what should companies be thinking about? Courts have shown that they are willing to extend trademark rights in physical goods to corresponding virtual goods. But when and why? And what role will contracts play for brand owners? To answer these questions, our instructors walk us through the earliest litigations in this area. Speakers: Tim Keegan, White & CaseLaura Logsdon, White & Case

Her Honor: My Life on the Bench…What Works, What’s Broken, and How to Change It

  • Author/Instructor:  BJI

Berkeley Judicial Institute Executive Director Judge Jeremy Fogel, in tandem with Judge Thelton Henderson, interview Judge LaDoris Hazzard Cordell. The event will be in person at the Berkeley Law School, and is open to all Berkeley Law students.   The former state judicial colleagues will talk about ALL of the issues in the title of Judge Cordell’s book; audience questions welcome. We anticipate a lively discussion! Judge Cordell’s book, HER HONOR, will be published in October. Early program registrants will receive a copy of the book, and will get so much more value from the discussion by reading the book prior to the program. Thinking about service in the judiciary as part of your legal career? Interested in the court’s role in solving the pressing problems of our day? This is a program you won’t want to miss. The publisher’s description: In Her Honor, Judge LaDoris Hazzard Cordell provides a rare and thought-provoking insider account of our legal system, sharing vivid stories of the cases that came through her courtroom and revealing the strengths, flaws, and much-needed changes within our courts. Judge Cordell, the first African American woman to sit on the Superior Court of Northern California, knows firsthand how prejudice has permeated our legal system. And yet, she believes in the system. From ending school segregation to legalizing same-sex marriage, its progress relies on legal professionals and jurors who strive to make the imperfect system as fair as possible. Her Honor is an entertaining and provocative look into the hearts and minds of judges. Cordell takes you into her chambers where she haggles with prosecutors and defense attorneys and into the courtroom during jury selection and sentencing hearings. She uses real cases to highlight how judges make difficult decisions, all the while facing outside pressures from the media, law enforcement, lobbyists, and the friends and families of the people involved. Cordell’s candid account of her years on the bench shines light on all areas of the legal system, from juvenile delinquency and the shift from rehabilitation to punishment, along with the racial biases therein, to the thousands of plea bargains that allow our overburdened courts to stay afloat—as long as innocent people are willing to plead guilty. There are tales of marriages and divorces, adoptions, and contested wills—some humorous, others heartwarming, still others deeply troubling. Her Honor is for anyone who’s had the good or bad fortune to stand before a judge or sit on a jury. It is for true-crime junkies and people who vote in judicial elections. Most importantly, this is a book for anyone who wants to know what our legal system, for better or worse, means to the everyday lives of all Americans. This course does not offer CLE credit.

Interactivity Tips for the “Occasional” Teacher

  • Author/Instructor:  BJI

2020 saw teachers of all stripes (some who professed being novices to technology) rise to the challenge of online learning. They met the demands of an extraordinary time, as did their students. And they did so much more—virtual office hours where no business could be discussed, online games, parties, graduations. That online expertise can be daunting for those who teach online only occasionally, so BJI collected some resources and tips for those “occasional teachers” who seek to make their online presentations more interactive. Want more? Join Berkeley Judicial Institute’s Director of Judicial Education Denise Neary and SMU Altshuler Distinguished Teaching Professor and Richard R. Lee Endowed Professor of Law Beth Thornburg as they consider some tips and techniques (break-out rooms, chat, games, polls) the “occasional” teacher can borrow to make online teaching more engaging and fun. Review BJI’s interactivity tips and tricks document here!

Judges, Technology and Artificial Intelligence

  • Author/Instructor:  BJI

University of Newcastle (Australia) Dean Tania Sourdin’s new book, Judges, Technology and Artificial Intelligence, is described: “New and emerging technologies are reshaping justice systems and transforming the role of judges. The impacts vary according to how structural reforms take place and how courts adapt case management processes, online dispute resolution systems and justice apps. Significant shifts are also occurring with the development of more sophisticated forms of Artificial Intelligence that can support judicial work or even replace judges. These developments, together with shifts towards online court processes are explored in Judges, Technology and Artificial Intelligence.” Dean Sourdin will introduce her research, discuss that work with Berkeley Center for Law and Technology’s Peter Menell and engage with the audience on these key issues for justice.

Judicial Stress and Resiliency: 2021 Pandemic Holiday Edition

  • Author/Instructor:  BJI

Is judging during the pandemic different from what you expected when you became a judge? Do you seek stronger connections with your work and with your colleagues?  Have the recent setbacks in many reopening plans been a new source of disappointment and stress? It’s worth reflecting on these issues as we approach a new year, particularly since the winter holidays typically are a challenging time for many of us. In 2020 and 2021, the Berkeley Judicial Institute offered four webinars on judicial temperament. These programs offered perspective that we hope will be helpful to judges at any time. The ongoing stresses of the pandemic encourage us to offer (at least) one more. In this program we will focus on these ongoing stresses and how judges are coping—and can cope—with them, regardless of the temperamental traits you bring to the bench. Join Judge Jeremy Fogel, BJI’s Executive Director, and Professor Terry Maroney as they devote a full program to answering questions submitted by you and that they’ve encountered in their many recent conversations with judges about the impact of the pandemic on judicial stress and resilience.   This course does not offer CLE credit.

Judicial Temperament (Part 1)

  • Author/Instructor:  BJI

“Sober as a judge” is a trope for good reason, but there has been little serious study about the elements of judicial temperament. Most people who have spent time in court can think of both positive and negative examples of judicial behavior, but developing a psychological framework for understanding that behavior is surprisingly difficult.  As virtual proceedings provide more transparency, judges are on public view to a greater extent than ever before.  What should viewers be looking for? Judge Jeremy Fogel, BJI Executive Director, and Professor Terry Maroney will discuss Professor Maroney’s cutting edge research on this topic.

Judicial Temperament Part 3: Emotional Regulation and Judicial Behavior

  • Author/Instructor:  BJI

How do parties, lawyers and the public hope that judges will behave in court? How can judges sharpen their understanding of their emotional responses to their often difficult jobs and regulate those responses in a way that supports an appropriate judicial demeanor? Join Judge Jeremy Fogel, BJI’s Executive Director, and Professor Terry Maroney as they discuss Professor Maroney’s work and consider how her study and observation can help judges in the courtroom.

Judicial Temperament Questions (and Answers)

  • Author/Instructor:  BJI

In 2020, BJI offered three programs on judicial temperament. July 15September 9December 2 Some common audience questions during the programs were: How do I recognize my temperamental traits as a judge? What is my temperamental “envelope of possibility” for change, and how can I make the most of it? How can I use this knowledge to change the temperature of an interaction in court? What techniques for regulating emotion do judicial colleagues find particularly effective?

Last Week in Texas with Michael Smith | Episode 1

  • Author/Instructor:  BCLT

The Eastern District provides us with a side-by-side comparison of motions for amending contentions. Together, these decisions illustrate the important facts for both sides. Judge Gilstrap also provides us with a wonderful example of what it takes to win a 12(c) motion and strike down a patent under 101. Compare this outcome to Judge Albright's "uphill scrabble" to win a Rule 12 motion on 101. Finally, Judge Albright gives updated guidance on alternative service and about modifying his model protective orders. Speaker: Michael Smith, Scheef & Stone   Texas is home to over 40% of all patent litigation. And with that many on-going cases, important changes happen weekly.

Judge Gilstrap shows his work when calculating enhanced damages on remand. For anyone looking at enhanced damages and ongoing royalties, this case is illustrative.  Sounding somewhat ominous, Judge Gilstrap explains the limits of a FRAND determination and the boundaries the court will not cross. The requirement for Infringement contentions varies from judge to judge even when the rule is exactly the same. Judge Schroeder adds to our knowledge by providing important and specific guidance on the scope of infringement contentions. In the Western District, Judge Albright continues to refine his local rules and issue procedural rulings. From protective orders to confidentiality designations, these procedural opinions are invaluable for those practicing in his court. My favorite opinion this week revolves around his view of 30(b)(6) topics. The opinion includes a list of 30(b)(6) topics that I wouldn't advise using.  Speaker: Michael Smith, Scheef & Stone   Texas is home to over 40% of all patent litigation.

Last Week in Texas with Michael Smith | Episode 4

  • Author/Instructor:  BCLT

Description: Judge Albright continues to provide detailed guidance on the often maddening day-to-day tasks of patent litigation. This guidance can both streamline a case and reduce the costs of litigation—but only if attorneys follow it. For example, we get detailed guidance on the court's approach to court costs, discovery of unnamed products, protective order changes, and counting interrogatories. We even get an interesting case on establishing venue by pointing to employees working at home. And maybe the most illustrative cases this time come from a pair of cases discussing motions to stay—one from Waco and one from Austin. Is a motion for preliminary injunction going to be a prerequisite going forward? Speaker: Michael Smith, Scheef & Stone   Texas is home to over 40% of all patent litigation.

Once again, Michael Smith highlights some key learning points from the Texas courts, including: Same plaintiff, different judges, different outcomes--What lessons can we learn from the Sonrai cases and the different decisions in Waco and Austin?   A delicate balancing act between asking the otherside to create new documents and asking the other side to explain their financial documents.  Can we really find a rule of reasonableness? LinkedIn abuse--A sharp rebuke about venue gamesmanship and the misuse of LinkedIn profiles. A textbook case for striking portions of an expert opinion. Judge Gilstrap explains his views on discovery of negotiation agreements and litigation funding documents. Past or present--what are the venue impacts of a closed facility?

  • Author/Instructor:  BCLT

Trial prep and discovery fights continue in Waco, and there still is a lot to learn. For example, the court doesn't take kindly to a company claiming that it cannot identify its own suppliers. Another great lesson—the court will enhance damages for willful infringement but only over portions of the infringement period. And yet another great lesson—the Waco court continues to transfer big-name defendants when they make their case.   What of the Austin division? Austin judges may be receptive to stays, but they are showing a strong resemblance to other Texas judges when it comes to deferring to the jury. In this highly-instructive case, an Austin judge refuses to strike expert damages testimony, letting the jury make the ultimate decision. Finally, the lesson of the week comes from the Eastern District: don't be unreasonable. In denying a motion to compel, the court twice scolded the plaintiff for refusing to narrow, "even modestly," its discovery requests. This is a great case for understanding the limits on interrogatory breadth.

Mass Tort Litigation Management in Bankruptcy Court

  • Author/Instructor:  BJI

Nearly four decades have passed since the birth of a radical experiment in procedural collectivism: using chapter 11 bankruptcy to manage mass tort litigation, starting with Johns Manville (asbestos) and A.H. Robins (Dalkon Shield IUD). Today, lawyers in mass tort bankruptcies routinely assert that bankruptcy is the only forum that offers complete resolution and global peace. Could it really be that the bankruptcy system is the right home for these disputes? Is there something inherent in the bankruptcy system that has caused, or at least facilitated, this apparent expansion?  What are the institutional limitations on any type of court to tackle the problems these cases raise?  Bankruptcy Judge William J. Lafferty, District Judge Frank W. Volk and Professor Melissa Jacoby discuss why so many controversial mass tort cases find their way to bankruptcy court, and consider how the courts might respond.

Rurality and Judging: A brown bag discussion with Dr. Michele Statz

  • Author/Instructor:  BJI

Dr. Statz’s new article, “On Shared Suffering: Judicial Intimacy in the Rural Northland,” explores the ways in which rurality impacts tribal and state court judges’ experiences on and beyond the bench. Beautifully written, it is of interest to those in every court environment. Law & Society Review says: “Drawing from four years of ethnographic fieldwork, Professor Statz’s study places its readers inside the “Northland” courtrooms of rural Wisconsin and Minnesota. Her research displays the intimate relationship that judges from these communities share with their litigants and demonstrates the hardships endured by both judges and their litigants due to the consequences of rural “legal deserts,” absent health and social services, and depressed local economies.” This course does not offer CLE credit.

Technology for Lawyers Workshop Part 1

  • Author/Instructor:  BCLT

This two part CLE is designed to help you become a more efficient user of your computer and to learn the most important features of Microsoft Word for legal practice. Part one focuses on becoming a more efficient computer user. Topics include shortcuts and tricks to work faster and with less reliance on the mouse. It then explains how to find information that has disappeared from the web, how to do so called Google "hacking," and how to find cookies and web beacons on clients' websites. This part concludes with an exercise to create a proper Microsoft Word template for legal office memoranda. Part two principally deals with creating a proper template in Microsoft word for legal briefs. You'll learn how to use styles in Word to make document-wide edits, saving a lot of time. The session then turns to clever, programmatic techniques anyone can use to clean up a poorly-designed Word document. For instance, if you receive a Word document that has character, line-level, or inconsistent formatting, these techniques will show you how to correct the document quickly and create document-wide edits in seconds. Finally, this part makes an appeal to consider "data-centric" lawyering: the re-conception of legal practice around data instead of final reports (like memos and briefs). This last section explains how to structure data properly so that data can be used to generate reports. The payoff comes in techniques to deepen client engagement and to derive business intelligence from your firm's activities.

The Elements of Judicial Temperament (Part Two)

  • Author/Instructor:  BJI

BJI’s July 15 presentation on judicial temperament introduced Professor Terry Maroney’s groundbreaking analysis of the elements of judicial temperament, the constellation of psychological traits that predict how judges will respond to the challenges of their work. Professor Maroney explained that while a person’s temperament is largely stable by adulthood, every judge has an “envelope of possibility” in which they can adapt their temperament to the professional requirements and public expectations of judges. At the conclusion of the presentation, many judges in the audience suggested a follow up program to examine the ways in which judges may understand their own temperamental traits and use that understanding to improve their judicial performance. This is that follow-up program. Once again, Judge Jeremy Fogel, BJI’s Executive Director, and Professor Terry Maroney will discuss Professor Maroney’s cutting edge research.

  • Author/Instructor:  BCLT

Toward A Deeper Understanding: Berkeley Asia IP SEP Talk Series 2021 - Concurrent Litigation and Jurisdictional Competition (Session 2) In recent years China has become a major jurisdiction for standard essential patent (“SEP”) licensing and litigation. A variety of key issues emerge in the process. Overall, certain consensus seems to have been formed between Chinese SEP jurisprudence and its counterparts in other major jurisdictions, such as the cautiously conditioned availability of injunctive relief, a more balanced approach of FRAND interpretation in principle, and the rough compliance with the HW v. ZTE framework in conducting a procedural FRAND scrutiny of the licensing process. On the other hand, challenges ensue in several aspects, including a lack of consensus in optimal FRAND methodologies, the role of antitrust in resolution of FRAND-related matters, how to harmonize global enforcement and deal with the rapidly escalating jurisdictional competition. In addition, new questions keep emerging with the 5G / Internet of Things (“IoT”) era dawning on us. Our success or failure in addressing these challenging discrepancies, will significantly impact the future development of global ICT / IoT industries.  In 2021, the Asia IP and Technology Law Project will host a four-part webinar series, which aims to facilitate in-depth conversations to address the underlying pervasive issues fueling these key challenges. Hopefully, these conversations can also serve as part of the basis to building more consensus and cooperation into the landscape of international SEP jurisprudence.

In recent years China has become a major jurisdiction for standard essential patent (“SEP”) licensing and litigation. A variety of key issues emerge in the process. Overall, certain consensus seems to have been formed between Chinese SEP jurisprudence and its counterparts in other major jurisdictions, such as the cautiously conditioned availability of injunctive relief, a more balanced approach of FRAND interpretation in principle, and the rough compliance with the HW v. ZTE framework in conducting a procedural FRAND scrutiny of the licensing process. On the other hand, challenges ensue in several aspects, including a lack of consensus in optimal FRAND methodologies, the role of antitrust in resolution of FRAND-related matters, how to harmonize global enforcement and deal with the rapidly escalating jurisdictional competition. In addition, new questions keep emerging with the 5G / Internet of Things (“IoT”) era dawning on us. Our success or failure in addressing these challenging discrepancies, will significantly impact the future development of global ICT / IoT industries.  In 2021, the Asia IP and Technology Law Project will host a four-part webinar series, which aims to facilitate in-depth conversations to address the underlying pervasive issues fueling these key challenges. Hopefully, these conversations can also serve as part of the basis to building more consensus and cooperation into the landscape of international SEP jurisprudence. The series will be moderated by Dr. Yuan Hao, BCLT.
