Report on standard essential patents to the EU Commission published
A group of experts has published its long-awaited report on the treatment of standard essential patents. The expert group was appointed by the Commission of the European Union and advises the Commission on these matters. The report is explicitly not a report written by the Commission or reflecting its opinion. Nevertheless, the report is likely to have a not inconsiderable influence on the Commission’s activities and, in any case, to set out a number of topics on which future activities of the Commission can be expected.
