The Rational Basis for FRANDly Courts Denying Injunctive Relief for SEPs Infringement

Title: The Rational Basis for FRANDly Courts Denying Injunctive Relief for SEPs Infringement

Authors: Pai, Yogesh

Abstract: Increasingly,
courts across several jurisdictions are unwilling to grant injunctions in cases
involving infringement
of Standards-Essential Patents (SEPs), the teleological reason being the
unfair/inequitable outcomes due to the patentee gaining an additional market
power not conveyed by the patent. The courts by evaluating the equitable
factors deny injunctions based on an underlying logic that since a patentee is
purely interested in deriving royalty on his patents committed by way of
Fair-Reasonable and Non-Discriminatory (FRAND) licensing offers he may be
compensated monetarily in lieu of an injunction. However, availability of
adequate remedy at law coupled with lack of irreparable
harm due to existence of FRAND commitment is not the only way to explain the
rational basis for lack of injunctive relief when viewed through a theoretical
and conceptual prism. This note chronicles the legal construct of patent
injunctions
from a comparative law perspective and articulates that the rational basis for
denial of an injunction for alleged infringement of SEPs is due to patent law’s
inability to construe the ‘right to exclude’ and its relationship with SEPs
protected
market since it is fraught with conceptual and inherent definitional fallacies
of assessment of ‘market power’ that go beyond the pale of patent law and
policy.
