Today, technical standards for interoperability and innovation represent key protocols (Ethernet, WiFi, LTE, etc.) that ensure compatibility and to promote competition. Moving forward these technical standards will underlie the development of an increasingly seamlessly internet-connected Internet of Things. As standards are developed, patented technologies are often contributed to the effort. "Standards essential patents" (SEPs) are patents covering technology implemented into a technical standard to the degree that an implementer of the technical standard must use the patent. Understanding SEP-related legal and policy issues is important to any organization that creates technology or provides products and services related to technical standard.  Join this session to learn about, and engage on, SEP licensing negotiation tactics, international perspectives on IP enforcement, emerging legal and policy developments across key venues, and the ultimate impact on IoT technology developers.
