In this first part of our “IPlytics Back To Basics Summer Webinar Series”, we take a deep dive into the world of declared standard essential patents (SEPs). SEPs aren’t just for 4G/5G telecommunications or autonomous vehicles. Regardless of the industry you are in, everyone will need to understand that standardized technologies subject to SEPs will be the backbone of connectivity.
To learn more, join IPlytics, its founder and CEO Tim Pohlmann, one of the top thought-leaders in this field, to learn:
- What is a standard essential patent? The role of a patent vs the role of a standard? Why do you need them? What is the difference between declared SEPs and valid essential SEPs.
- How/when to file SEPs: Insights into a company’s SEP filing and prosecution practices.
- IPlytics Data: Heavily patented standards and why these standards are so important (3G, 4G, 5G, WiFi, Bluetooth, AVC/HEVC/VVC video coding, DVB digital broadcasting, ATSC advanced television, Qi wireless charging and so on)
- IPlytics Data: Global organizations with large declared SEP portfolios and the technologies and industries they operate in.
- Industry Anecdotes: Famous SEP litigation cases, famous SEP acquisitions, famous SEP licensing deals.
- The future of declared SEPs and what you need to know now!
