Show Notes

Senior associates and IP specialists Luke Maunder and Naomi Hazenberg briefly recap the history of jurisdiction challenges in the British Courts, including the relevant aspects of the decision by the UK Supreme Court in Conversant / Unwired Planet. They then look in detail at the latest decision of the Court of Appeal in Nokia v Oppo, when Oppo attempted to have the FRAND aspects stayed in favour of global determination in an alternative forum, the People's Republic of China.
