SEP研究会(標準必須特許 SEP Research Group)

SEPをめぐる動きは2021年に入りさらに活発になっています。欧州ではEUDG SEP Roundtable series, SEP関連判例、 大型事案Nokia v. Daimlerの決着、ドイツ特許法の改正などSEP関連の動きが早い。米国では新政権の下での独禁当局DOJ,FTCの新体制がいよいよ稼働しており目が話せない。一方中国ではSEPは中国の推し進めるグローバル戦略にとりきわめて重要な位置を占めるので、ガイドライン・施策や裁判所における禁訴令(ASI)などが着実に積み重ねられている。日本でもSEPの関連の動向は関係官庁(経産省、特許庁、総務省など)のイニシアチブで進められるが、世界のSEP動向の変化の速度に対応しきれているかは疑問。

The movement around SEP has become even more active in 2021.  In Europe there are EUDG SEP Roundtable Webinar series, Nokia/Daimler settlement, ASI/AASI in Germany and the revision of the German patent law. In US new antitrust agencies, DOJ and FTC ’s further move grab our attention. In China, as SEP plays important role for its global strategy, new rule/guide line and judicial decisions are being accumulated one after another for future.
