Mr. Thiem spoke of the recent case law developments concerning SEPs, also known as standard essential patents (patents that are so essential in certain fields of technology that they constitute the basis for any further developments of the relevant technology), and FRAND (that is, the fair, reasonable and non-discriminatory conditions that have to be inserted in agreements licensing SEPs), thus providing a wide albeit comprehensive overview of the most currently debated legal issues.

The event was also a pleasant opportunity to engage in a wider discourse concerning all of the great themes related to patent law, in respect of which the law firm LGV Avvocati has always strived to keep up to date also for practical work purposes.
