Clearing the 5G Patent Forest!

22 October 2020

Companies outside the Telecoms space are sometimes surprised to learn that industry standard technologies – particularly those underpinning 5G – are not free to use, but are instead covered by thousands of patents. These patents are an important source of revenue for their owners, but present a danger for unwary companies whose products include wireless connectivity.

In this session, our expert panel will talk about the patents that cover 5G and give practical advice on how to engage with 5G patent owners.

This webinar covers:
• Why do these patents exist?
• How much does it cost to use them?
 • Can I avoid using these patents?
• What should you do if you are approached by a patent owner?
• How can you protect your 5G innovations and create your own 5G patent estate?
• Engagement and contractual do’s and don’ts
