承担全球治理责任, 了解更新的IEEE专利政策

Posted by ieee on 2016年10月12日

20153, 发行了诸如WiFi™等知名标准的全球主要标准制定组织IEEE,修改了其专利政策。通过这样做,IEEE试图对(F)RAND (公平、合理和非歧视性)原则进行了进一步的澄清和明确:这也是标准必要专利许可的一个关键元素。这一步导致了激烈的辩论,并留下了行业划分标准制定组织应该承担的治理功能。文章论述了更新的IEEE专利政策的核心原则并阐述了标准制定组织的有权表达他们的全球治理责任。

The paper's Abstract:

In March 2015, IEEE, a major standard-setting organization known for issuing prominent standards such as WiFi, amended its patent policy. In doing so, IEEE sought to provide further transparency and clarity to what the (F)RAND (fair, reasonable and non discriminatory) promise entails; an element critical to the licensing of standard essential patents. This step led to heated debates and left industry divided on the governance function that standard-setting organizations should assume. This paper discusses the central tenets of the updated IEEE patent policy in light of standard-setting organizations prerogatives to articulate their global governance responsibilities.
