Public Consultation on Patents and Standards by the European Commission
12 February 2015
The IP Federation has submitted a response to the European Commission’s public consultation on patents and standards. The consultation is open until 15 February 2015.
The membership of the IP Federation is diverse, and so this response is general in nature. However member companies are very much aware of developments in telecommunications, and in particular that remote communication capability will soon be added to a wide range of products and devices as the “Internet of Things” becomes a reality. Standardised telecommunications technologies are therefore of increasing significance to a wider spectrum of manufacturers and service providers outside the immediate field of telecommunications, including member companies of the IP Federation, many of which have ongoing research and development activities which take account of these developments.
