Global FRAND & SEP Symposium

On any given day, billions of people around the globe benefit from the interoperability of internet-connected devices, also known as the Internet of Things (IoT). Countless technical standards, such as 5G, serve as the framework that enables this phenomenon.

Companies of all sizes work together to draft technical standards as participants in standard-setting organizations (“SSOs”). However, legal and business conflicts are inevitable. These same companies are competing, or will be competing, for revenue at different levels within the IoT ecosystem.

This agenda-neutral symposium is designed for professionals whose job functions relate directly or indirectly to standardized products. Panelists such as judges, in-house counsel, scholars, and practitioners from different countries will help participants sharpen their skills and understanding of the law of standardization.

A continental breakfast, lunch, and a networking reception are included for attending participants. The event will be streamed live and available on-demand for participants in Europe and Asia. The Computer History Museum will keep its Revolution exhibit open during the networking reception, which includes over one-thousand artifacts and a theater where renown innovators will prepare you for “what’s next?”
