Ericsson Fifth Circuit Win Further Fortifies SEP Owner Stance in U.S.

Mintz Member and Chair of the Firm’s Intellectual Property Division Michael Renaud was quoted in an article published by Managing IP on a recent judgment issued by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit in HTC v Ericsson. In the article, Mr. Renaud commented on how the ruling indicates an emerging trend of U.S. courts rejecting the Smallest Saleable Patent Practicing Unit (SSPPU) argument made in the context of a fair, reasonable, and non-discriminatory (FRAND) dispute governed under European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI)’s Intellectual Property rules.
