Complex issues are at the intersection of antitrust and intellectual property laws, and licensing of standard essential patents (SEPs) under fair, reasonable, and non-discriminatory (FRAND) terms is a perfect example. Does the widely accepted FRAND framework work well or is it time to think about improvements? Prof. Jorge Contreras, law professor and recognized expert on antitrust and IP, speaks with Anora Wang and Christina Ma on the innovator-implementer dichotomy, remedies, and races to courthouses worldwide. Listen to this episode to learn about the most critical issues about FRAND.
