This in-depth analysis, commissioned by the European Parliament’s Policy Department for Citizens’ Rights and Constitutional Affairs at the request of the JURI Committee, assesses the European Commission of (EC) Communication of 29 November 2017 on the EU approach to Standard Essential Patents. The report examines the principles identified in the Communication with respect to the Commission’s proposals on (i) increasing transparency on SEPs; (ii) determining valuation of SEPs( Standard Essential Patents) and FRAND ( Fair, Reasonable, and Non-Discriminatory) terms; and (iii) enforcement. The report evaluates the efficient resolution of licensing disputes over FRAND, including via litigation, arbitration and mediation, licensing pools and collective licensing. The current document also puts forward some policy recommendations to, inter alia, enhance the general environment of FRAND licencing in the context of SEPs.

Implementation of Optional Instruments within European Civil Law

16-01-2012

This study examines how European optional instruments are implemented in the Member States. It covers civil law and provides a comprehensive analysis of this innovative method, which although adopted in various fields (civil procedure, intellectual property, companies), was not organised or even clearly identified as such by the European legislator until a proposal for a regulation on a Common European Sales Law (11 October 2011) revealed its full potential. The study, which is based on field surveys ...

This study examines how European optional instruments are implemented in the Member States. It covers civil law and provides a comprehensive analysis of this innovative method, which although adopted in various fields (civil procedure, intellectual property, companies), was not organised or even clearly identified as such by the European legislator until a proposal for a regulation on a Common European Sales Law (11 October 2011) revealed its full potential. The study, which is based on field surveys conducted using a detailed questionnaire, identifies the strengths and weaknesses of this method and poses thought-provoking questions for the future.

The European Parliament has been working towards building a discussion platform and a resource for further policy actions in the field of intellectual property rights. The Science and Technology Options Assessment Panel has set the goal of further enlarging the area of investigation in light of recent policy developments at the European level. In particular, the current study covers current policy issues in the governance of the European patent system, such as the backlog issue, the enhancement of patent awareness within the European Parliament, patent enforcement, the regional dimension of intellectual property in Europe, patents and standardisation, the use of existing patents, and patents and competition. These issues were discussed in the conference with stakeholders from European to national patent offices, from private to public sector actors. As a result of the conference, it was stated the need for an IP strategy for Europe.

Policy Options for the Improvement of the European Patent System

03-09-2007

This report is based on an independent, policy-oriented investigation of the current European patent system. The central premise of the report is that the patent system has so far been a positive factor in promoting innovation and the diffusion of knowledge, and thus that the system is contributing in a constructive way to economic and social welfare objectives. In acknowledging the importance of the patent system in relation to many aspects of society, it is also essential to continually evaluate ...

This report is based on an independent, policy-oriented investigation of the current European patent system. The central premise of the report is that the patent system has so far been a positive factor in promoting innovation and the diffusion of knowledge, and thus that the system is contributing in a constructive way to economic and social welfare objectives. In acknowledging the importance of the patent system in relation to many aspects of society, it is also essential to continually evaluate whether the system is working as effectively as it could be. In addition, because of some of the influences coming to bear upon the system at the moment, as well as the various ways in which it has been operating, the workings of the European patent system especially merits close public attention.

Study on the desirability of EC level legislation in the area of software patents. It is based on a comparative analysis of the present state of the law, and the advantages and disadvantages appearing from current practice in the EC Member States, the United States and Japan. While its principal focus is on software patents, the study also includes commentary on the patenting of 'business methods', as patents in this area are closely related to software patents.

Study on the desirability of EC level legislation in the area of software patents. It is based on a comparative analysis of the present state of the law, and the advantages and disadvantages appearing from current practice in the EC Member States, the United States and Japan. While its principal focus is on software patents, the study also includes commentary on the patenting of 'business methods', as patents in this area are closely related to software patents. It has also considered the proposal for a 'Directive on the patentability of computer-implemented inventions', that was published on February 20, 2002.
