China IPR Blog Reports that Chinese FRAND Decision Is Affirmed on Appeal

I don't normally post twice on the same day, but this seems like a very important story.  The China IPR blog of October 29, 2013 reports that the judgment of the Shenzhen Intermediate Court in the Huawei/InterDigital case, in which the court awarded a FRAND royalty equal to 0.019% of the price of Huawei products, has been affirmed on appeal by the Guangdong High Court.  This is the only write-up I've seen so far on the appeal, and the blog post indicates that the appellate decision itself (like the lower court's decision) has not been published.  For my previous posts on the case, see here, here, and here.

Via Danny Sokol's Antitrust & Competition Law Blog, I also thought I would alert readers to an ABA webinar on FRAND in Asia scheduled for Monday, November 11 from 10-11 a.m. Eastern time.  Here's the link to the announcement on Professor Sokol's blog.  Looks like you have to register in advance, but the event is free for ABA members.
