WIPO Mediation and Arbitration Workshop
Munich, Germany

For many companies, intellectual property has become an essential business asset as well as a means of creating value. It is being exploited on an increasingly international level in various forms of collaborative arrangements, such as licenses and technology transfer agreements and R&D agreements. As a consequence, parties increasingly look for dispute resolution mechanisms that match their business requirements: private procedures which provide efficient, flexible and less costly means of settling international disputes without disrupting commercial relationships.

WIPO Workshop on ADR for FRAND Disputes
Munich, Germany


Technical standards increasingly incorporate technology covered by patent rights. Many standard-setting organizations (SSOs) require participants in the standard setting process to disclose ownership of any standard-essential patents (SEPs), and to commit to license such SEPs to any third party on terms that are fair, reasonable and non-discriminatory (FRAND). If negotiation of FRAND licensing terms fails, arbitration and other Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) mechanisms allow consideration of a number of issues that may facilitate a time- and cost-efficient solution of the dispute.
