Earlier this month we held the third in our LimeGreen Live webinar series, in conjunction with Hogan Lovells Automotive and Mobility Industry Sector Group
This webinar explored recent SEP case developments in three key jurisdictions—the U.S., Germany, and China. The speakers were three members of our global patent team handling automotive patent litigation and SEP disputes: Katie Feng (China), Joe Raffetto (U.S.), and Benjamin Schroeer (Germany).
The global team discussed recent developments in their respective jurisdictions, as well as exploring the practical impacts of these developments and what to watch out for in the months and year ahead.
The standard essential patent (SEP) threat continues to grow in the automotive industry. The number of declared SEPs continues to rise; standardized technologies continue to be incorporated into more and more cars; and the level of SEP holder activity in the automotive field continues to increase. A coordinated global strategy is essential in this field, as SEP assertions and lawsuits often implicate multiple jurisdictions. Thus, it is important to understand how the legal landscapes are evolving across the world, as courts continue to grapple with how to handle SEP disputes.
