Ten Things to do About Patent Holdup of Standards (and One Not to Do)

Posted by D. Daniel Sokol

Another interesting paper on issues of competition in IP is worth a read.  Mark Lemley of Stanford Law School has written Ten Things to do About Patent Holdup of Standards (and One Not To).

ABSTRACT: Congress, the courts, scholars, and the press have focused more and more attention on what is shaping up to be the central public policy problem in intellectual property law today: the problem of holdup by patent owners, particularly but not exclusively in the context of standard setting. I will suggest ten things we might do to deal with this problem, and at least one thing we probably ought not to do.
