ICT Standards and Patents – the public authority and international perspective
The European Commission and the European Patent Office will jointly organise a second public conference aimed at further increasing transparency and predictability in the treatment of IPR in ICT standardisation.
The IPR treatments in ICT standardisation should contribute to the competitiveness of companies while providing equal treatment of business models. Public authorities therefore need to pay particular attention to IPR aspects in ICT standards which may impact on public policy setting. Consequently, more efforts may be necessary to ensure adequate transparency, consistency and predictability of IPR treatment in the integrated set of standards.
