OxFirst Webinar on Japanese FRAND Guidelines

OxFirst will be putting on a free webinar on Wednesday, November 11, from 15:00-16:00 British Standard Time (that's 10:00 a.m.-11:00 a.m. Eastern Time).  The title is "The Japanese Guidelines on FRAND Royalty Rate Determination."  Here is OxFirst's description:


A Study Group appointed by the Japanese Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry has recently published Guidelines on Fair Value Calculation of Standard Essential Patents for Multi-Component Products. The Group was composed of high-profile Japanese lawyers and academics.


The guidelines represent an important intervention into the ongoing debate concerning the tension between standard essential patents (SEPs) (which offer their owners R&D incentives/rewards in the form of monopolistic rights) and technology standards (which should be widely used by all players in the market to ensure interoperability).


Speakers will include Yoshiaki Komachi, Enrico Bonadio, and Luke McDonagh.  Registration is available here.  The Guidelines themselves are available here.  For previous mention on this blog, see here.
