We promote transparency and fairness
in Standard Essential Patent licensing

We stand for a sustainable innovation ecosystem

WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?

Standard Essential Patents should be licensed on Fair, Reasonable, and Non-Discriminatory terms. How?

REASONABLE
ROYALTY RATES

The rates should reflect the value of the invention only, no more, no less.

LICENSES
TO ALL

Licenses for SEPs should be available at any point in the value chain.

TRANSPARENCY

Transparency should be encouraged to create greater predictability and avoid discrimination.

A SUSTAINABLE
FRAMEWORK

A FRAND rate must take into account the overall royalty that could be reasonably charged for all SEPs.

PREDICTABILITY FOR INNOVATORS

The FRAND commitment must follow
the SEP in transfers.

FAIR NEGOTIATIONS

Injunctions should only be available in
exceptional circumstances.

Our members are the beating heart of IoT innovation: from SMEs to multinational brands, and including SEP holders as well as SEP implementers.

FSA members benefit from the knowledge and activities of an association focused on the promotion of policy principles for FRAND licensing.
