News – IDPR Event: GEMA TYPE AGENCIES AS A SOLUTION FOR FRAND ?

Posted: October 1st, 2019

The Munich IP Dispute Resolution Forum organizes an event to be held in Munich on 12 November entitled: “GEMA TYPE AGENCIES AS A SOLUTION FOR FRAND? “

The event is a joint initiative of the Max Planck Institute and Judge Zigann of the Landgericht Munich.

From the website: “In the meeting it will be discussed whether and to what extent GEMA type agencies might help to resolve FRAND issues and to avoid SEP related disputes. Prima facie, such setting should help to avoid discrimination, in particular regarding SMEs, some of which are confronted with SEPs, while others remain underneath the radar. On the other hand, the question of what is fair and reasonable still needs to be answered.”

One of the speakers is Klaus Haft, former President of EPLAW. The event is free of charge.
