On June 21, 2011, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) will hold a public workshop to address antitrust issues arising from the incorporation of patented technologies in collaborative standards, including the risk of patent "hold-up" and its effect on competition. Among the topics to be considered are patent disclosure rules of standard-setting organizations, commitments given by patent holders to license users of the standard on reasonable and non-discriminatory (RAND) terms, and the disclosure of licensing terms by patent holders before the standard is adopted. The FTC will also consider whether certain conduct by patent holders is deceptive or unfair under Section 5 of the FTC Act. Public comments may be filed until July 8, 2011.
