Professor Sir Robin Jacob spoke at the Licensing Executives Society International (LESI) Virtual Annual Conference on 27-28 May 2021 on a panel entitled Restored Balance and Clarity in the Innovation Ecosystem. He advised that the European Commission should not get involved in deciding whether something is FRAND, or not - they should force the parties into arbitration. They should require ETSI, as a matter of competition law to have a dispute resolution system.
