Statistics of Chinese SEP Cases in 2011-2019

DATE:2020-07-02      FROM:LexField

As litigations involving standard-essential patents ("SEPs") are on the rise globally and in China, LexField's research team has recently conducted a thorough statistical review of SEP cases accepted by the Chinese courts in the period of 2011~2019.  We are excited to share the report out of this review.  Basic findings include:

· From 2011 to December 2019, Chinese courts accepted 160 cases related to SEPs.

· Most of the cases involve foreign entities and relate to the telecommunication industry.

· Most of the cases were filed with the courts in Beijing, Guangdong, Shanghai and Jiangsu.

· Most of the cases are patent infringement disputes, while cases asking the court to determine FRAND terms during license negotiations are also on the rise.

The report includes a quantitative analysis from annual distribution, parties involved, geographic distribution of the courts, causes of action, adjudication progress and final outcomes, and also provides a particular summary of the SEP cases accepted in 2018 and 2019.
