    Draft program:

    → How the present Rules, regulations, case law in the US and EU resolve the existing issues ?

    → Is a mere adaptation of SEPs licensing practice a viable solution? Is there a need for other rules, more constraints, other limits ?

    • For instance, setting new practices such as mandatory pools or similar?
    • Or having new rules : fixed rates, licensee level identified from each value chain, define royalty base, free license, royalty cap... ?
    • Or giving SSOs new role? Or using Open Source model…?

    → On a longer term, is total transparency a viable and good solution for innovation and competition? Which level and which mechanisms are stakeholders prepared to accept? 

    → Does the financing of Innovation by SEPs lead to distorting competition ?

    → What are the minimum rules and means related to SEPs to make strong innovation sustainable and to avoid using SEPs as a mean to control the market?
