Research: Economic efficiency and field-of-use pricing of SEP licences under FRAND terms
by Dr Eskil Ullberg, PhD, Adjunct Professor, George Mason University, Virginia, USA and Head of the Trade in Ideas Program, Institute of Management of Innovation and Technology, Stockholm, Sweden.
This summary paper is concerned with patented technology markets, and whether price differentiation based on field-of-use is economically efficient. The focus is on the licensing of SEPs on FRAND terms and conditions, including also the Internet of Things (IoT) applications, and the economic growth in the digital economy, especially for SMEs. The central argument proposed is that the difference in the value between usages of standardised technologies determines whether a single price for all usages or specific field-of-use prices are economically efficient. The full version of this paper will appear in the forthcoming issue of the Queen Mary Journal of Intellectual Property, Volume 9, 2019.

Research: A FRAND Regime for Dominant Digital Platforms
by Mathew Heim and Igor Nikolic
This study explores how European policy and legislation has traditionally applied the ‘fair, reasonable and non-discriminatory’ or FRAND regime in order to ensure access to critical goods or services. This regime provides inspiration in the on-going debate around dominant digital platforms. The authors of this paper are Mathew Heim, Tanfield Chambers and Dr. Igor Nikolic, University College London.
