Roundtable Discussion of 6th Draft IPR Guidelines of SAIC

 

Key topics of discussion:

1.What are the key points during law enforcement, aiming at the monopolistic conducts relating to intellectual property, which emerge in the market? 

2.Is it possible for the law-enforcing department to set up some presumptions while formulating the “Anti-monopoly Law Enforcement Guides for Intellectual Property” or other regulations and judging if the “specific conducts” are monopolistic ones? For example, if the specific patents possessed by a certain enterprise constitute relevant “Essential Facilities” of the market, it can be presumed that the enterprise owns the market dominant position. In addition, is it possible to establish some “Safe Harbors” in these guides or regulations in combination of such indicators like “Market Shares”? 

3.What is the tendency of the latest law making and enforcing in the world in the field of “Patent Pool”? 

4.What kinds of patent right executions are probably “Monopolistic Conducts” during the process of “Standard Formulation and Enforcement”? 

5.If an “Intellectual Property Right Holder” over-issues “Warning Letters for Infringement”, is such a conduct a monopolistic one? 

6.Can “Intellectual Properties” form the “Essential Facilities” needed during participation in relevant market competitions? What are the constitutive requirements for the “Monopolistic Conduct of Misuse of Market Dominant Position” in the way of “Refusing to License Intellectual Properties”?  

7.What are the constitutive requirements for the “Monopolistic Conducts” pertinent to “Standard Formulation and Enforcement”?
