What this event is about

For the sixth time in a row, we are inviting you to discuss the interplay of IP, Competition, and Public Policy.

With several key questions to be addressed, such as whether FRAND licensing rates should be global, the adequate level of licensing as well as the Determination of FRAND royalty rates, there is a dire need to caliber the role of both IP and competition law for the high-tech 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 breaks the equation of being a tool for economic growth and prosperity.
