Publications: Negotiating SEP licenses in Europe after Huawei v ZTE: guidance from national courts
This article by Dr Claudia Tapia and Dr Spyros Makris first appeared in Managing Intellectual Property's May 2018 issue. It looks at how national courts in Europe are interpreting the CJEU guidance after Huawei v ZTE. The CJEU provided a legal framework focused on the good faith conduct to be expected of both parties. Since the Court’s decision in 2015, national courts have been steadily exploring the scope of these obligations, providing further clarity on what is or is not to be considered appropriate behaviour.

Research: Are PAEs a Threat to Europe?
by Igor Nikolic
Patent Assertion Entities are often negatively portrayed as harmful “patent trolls” that engage in speculative and abusive patent litigation against manufacturing companies. Although mass PAE litigation has mainly been US phenomenon, a recent study indicated that PAEs are on the rise in Europe and a number of changes to the European patent and litigation system have been recommended. This paper provides a different perspective on PAEs. It will first show that not all PAEs engage in harmful activities and that most are in the legitimate business of patent licensing. Further, Europe has in place different patent and litigation incentives than the US, which effectively guard against any abusive patent litigation. Finally, the available evidence does not in fact show the presence of mass and harmful PAE litigation in Europe.
