Patent Law Update
Patent law can sometimes seem slow-moving, but the Supreme Courts in both the UK and USA have heard three major patent cases in the last 12 months, and the UK Supreme Court is likely to have to consider the question of global cross-party licensing of electronics patents in the next 12. Meanwhile, the Beijing High Court has also ruled in its first appeal on a FRAND licensing dispute.
These developments will have an ongoing effect on technology owners and users across an increasing range of industries.
