6th IP and Competition Forum - The Future of FRAND

CPD Accredited - Continuous Education for the Legal Profession
23-24 & 25th June 2021 - Online

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 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.
