In cooperation with the WIPO (World Intellectual Property Organization), the IPDR Forum develops the “FRAND Case Management Guidelines” as a pratical aid for parties and arbitrators in the conduct of complex FRAND license arbitration proceedings. Among other things, the question of to what extent a FRAND dispute should and can be heard and, if necessary, decided before an arbitration court and/or in the course of mediation proceedings is dealt with in detail. To this end, the guidelines point out various options under which the parties can choose - if necessary in consultation with the arbitral tribunal or mediator - and thus ensure that the arbitral tribunal and/or mediator has clear competence. In addition, general points on possible submission agreements and procedural orders are addressed. Further details on the project can be found at http://www.ipdr-forum.org/ and http://www.ipdr-forum.org/guidelines.
The workshop will take place
