Finding an efficiency-oriented approach to scrutinise the essentiality of potential SEPs: A Survey

The assessment of SEPs’ true essentiality is a topic that has gained significant interest among policy makers. As the European Commission is expected to deliver a legislative proposal to promote an efficient and sustainable SEP licensing ecosystem, the webinar aims to provide a review of the literature on different mechanisms that could be used to determine the essentiality of a patent. Indeed, whilst any policy intervention stems from the need to ensure a reasonable balance among accuracy, transparency, and cost of the essentiality checks, the available approaches score differently in terms of their efficiency.
