JPO's Invitation for Public Comments on the Draft of SEP Guide

I mentioned a couple of weeks ago (here) that the Japan Patent Office (JPO) was inviting public comments on its Draft "Guide to Licensing Negotiations Involving Standard Essential Patents."  Here is a link to the draft; comments are due by April 10 (see here).  From my admittedly quick reading of the draft, it seems balanced in its discussion of the various issues, and provides a nice overview of the major topics as presented in the judicial decisions in Japan, Germany, the U.S., and the U.K.  For further discussion, Jacob Schindler recently published a post on the Draft Guide here.
