Technical standards, particularly for information and communications technology (ICT) industries, require use of patented technologies, as reflected by continuing growth in Wi-Fi and cellular standards. Understanding issues relating to the use of patented technologies in technical standards is more important now for patent practitioners than ever before. Patents and Standards: Practice, Policy, and Enforcement is the definitive resource in this area. Patent prosecutors can learn the standards process and how to advise clients on strategies for patent preparation, prosecution, and portfolio development in the standards area. Patent litigators need to understand the unique issues regarding enforcement of standard-essential patents (SEPs). In-house counsel who want to build more valuable SEP portfolios will learn to develop portfolios, create effective licensing programs, and manage outside counsel.
