The European Court of Justice has issued its judgment in the Huawei/ZTE case.  The judgment confirms that it can be an abuse of a dominant position for a company holding a standard essential patent to seek an injunction against an alleged infringer, where the dominant company has undertaken to a standard body to grant a licence for the patent on fair, reasonable and non-discriminatory terms.  However, it will not be an abuse where, prior to seeking the injunction, the dominant company alerted the alleged infringer of the infringement and, where the alleged infringer wished to conclude a licensing agreement, the dominant company offered a licence on fair, reasonable and non-discriminatory terms.  Click here.
