5th IP and Competition Forum Building Bridges in Turbulent Markets

Building Bridges in Turbulent Markets - CPD Accredited - Continuous Education for the Legal Profession

This was an excellent event. Congratulations on a very interesting and enjoyable conference.
Sir Richard Arnold
Lord Justice, British High Court of Justice
The conference has, as usual with events of similar kind organized by Oxfirst, brought a wealth of experienced scholars, both from industry, institutions and IP law firms, together. The discussions were extremely lively, sometimes controversial, but always stimulating.
Prof Heinz Goddar
Founding Partner , Boehmert&Boehmert
I highly appreciated being able to attend your conference. I enjoyed the debate and discussions and I believe you have made a great effort to advance the debate to a more efficient FRAND licensing universe.
Paul Lugard
Partner, Baker Botts (Belgium) LLP
This was the best conference I have been in the last five years and I am only saying this because I was not at the OxFirst conference last year.

What this event is about?

For the fifth time in a row we are inviting to discuss the interplay of IP and Competition. With several key questions to be addressed, such as global FRAND licensing rates, the determination of royalty rates, as well as recent case law in this area, there is a dire need to calibre the role of both IP and competition law for the ICT innovation ecosystem. More than ever before is it important to provide thought leadership and contribute to formulating judicial and governance perspectives that will assure that IP remains a tool for economic growth and prosperity.
