The Geopolitical Implications of Patent Holdout and the Ensuing Race to the Home Court

Compass Lexecon EMEA Chair, Jorge Padilla, and Senior Policy Advisor, Andrew Tuffin, contributed to the Cambridge University Press book 5G and Beyond: Intellectual Property and Competition Policy in the Internet of Things, with a chapter on the geopolitical implications of patent holdout and the ensuing race to the home court. In the chapter, the authors discuss the danger posed to standardization in wireless technology markets by strategic efforts to initiate SEP-related litigation in courts that are perceived to favor the interests of innovators or implementers.
