O’Melveny’s Bush, Shan Author China Law & Practice Article on IP Licensing

July 17, 2013 O’Melveny & Myers partner Nathan Bush and senior legal consultant Lining Shan authored the article “Court Finds IP Licensing Violates Anti-monopoly Law,” for the July/August 2013 issue of China Law & Practice.  The piece examines the February 2013 ruling by the Shenzhen Intermediate People’s Court that patent licensor InterDigital had violated Chinese anti-monopoly regulations, and abused its dominance in the licensing and enforcement of standard-essential patents.  In the article, the authors argue that this decision “raises serious questions about the impact of Chinese litigation risks on licensing and standard-setting practices.”
