In the first of three Bird & Bird-sponsored podcasts, Americas editor Patrick Wingrove spoke to Richard Vary, partner at Bird & Bird, Clemens Heusch, global head of dispute resolution at Nokia, and Matthias Schneider, chief licensing officer at Audi, about standard essential patent licensing.

Here, Vary, Heusch and Schneider debate issues of fair, reasonable and non-discriminatory terms in the context of component-level versus end-point licensing, and the recent UK Supreme Court decision in Unwired Planet v Huawei.

We would like to thank Bird & Bird for making this podcast possible and for lending the necessary expertise in this matter.
