This seminar addresses the challenges that SEP licensing currently faces between EU and China. In the wave of technology developments, Chinese courts have been more proactive in handling SEP-related disputes. The judicial approach in handling SEP litigations by Chinese courts should be closely monitored and multiple legal issues are discussed in rulings from the Chinese courts. Also a debate on whether courts have the authority to decide global rates is attracting attention.
Location: University of Copenhagen, South Campus, Faculty of Law, Room 4A.0.56
In 2021, Denmark introduced one of the most vigorous foreign investment screening laws yet implemented across Europe. This lecture will cover what kind of transactions that are now restricted, who will be considered foreigners under the Danish legislation, what is now deemed “critical” and also the process for assessing whether the FDI (foreign direct investment) rules apply as well as the filing and approval procedure.
The lecture will also look at how the new legislation will affect Chinese FDI to Denmark at a time where European scrutiny of Chinese investment into critical sectors and infrastructure is on the rise.
The lecture is open for all, but registration is required. Sign up at
