TCL v. Ericsson FRAND Decision: Legal Implications


On November 8, 2017, the U.S. District Court in the Central District of California issued its TCL v. Ericsson decision which determined fair, reasonable and nondiscriminatory (FRAND) royalty rates for standard essential patent (SEP) portfolios using both analysis of Ericsson’s comparable licenses and a “topdown” patent counting approach. The ruling is expected to have significant implications on future SEP licenses and on multinational litigation.

In order to effectively manage SEPs and ensure FRAND compliance, patent owners and implementers must keep themselves aware of emerging developments.
