Intels Views on IPR in Standards
  • September 2005
  • Earl Nied
  • Program Director SIGs and Standards
  • Legal Department - Intel Corporation

2
Intel Participates in Many SIGs/Standards
ACPI AVS DMTF DLNA EOU GSMA IETF IPMI JEDEC Khrono
s NPF OASIS OIF OMA PICMG RosettaNet SNIA SSI
(many others)
  • Currently in gt 350 working committees in gt 175
    different organizations
  • Including many RF environments
  • ACPI, W3C, Serial ATA I, USB, UDDI, Bluetooth,
    DVI, Khronos, RosettaNet and many others
  • And other unique offers to license
  • UPnP, AVS, WiMax, C/CLI, etc.

Getting Key IP Stakeholder Cooperation
  • Success in Standards necessitates balancing
    interests
  • Between the innovators/technology leaders (IP
    stakeholders) and implementers
  • Important to encourage IP Stakeholders to
    participate under the rules of the organization
  • Patent risks for implementers can be lowered
    (although not eliminated) through reasonable
    disclosure policies and licensing obligations
    that do not deter broad participation of IP
    stakeholders

Intels Patent Strategy Overview
  • As a technology leader, manufacturer and supplier
    to a variety of markets, Intel maintains a
    significant patent portfolio generally for
    defensive purposes
  • We use our patents to
  • Drive innovation and technical reputation
  • Protect our investments
  • Negotiate for design freedom of action while
    protecting against copying
  • Support and defend ourselves, our customers and
    our channels of distribution
  • Enable or expand markets for our
    products/investments
  • Royalty income from essential claims in
    standards is not a primary objective
  • Our strategy is consistent with many other
    companies that need to compete worldwide

5
Patent Value in Negotiations
  • Having your own patents of value to negotiate
    with is a necessary consideration when your
    business model is to develop and sell leading
    edge products
  • Any blanket commitment to restrict the use of
    patents (including RF-RAND or RAND in Standards
    Development) requires careful consideration
  • May increase potential market for your
    investments
  • But also can reduce the value of the patent in
    negotiations
  • Any decision to restrict use of our patents
    typically includes consideration of
  • Our business interests
  • Scope of the commitment
  • Potential to effect adoption

6
Intels View on IPRs in Standards
  • Standards should be based on best technical
    solutions per market requirements
  • Standards depend on innovation (typically
    involves IPR)
  • Successful standards
  • Balance the needs of innovators with the needs of
    implementers
  • Respect valid IP and the rights of IPR holders
  • IPR policies
  • Must have a reasonable scope, be practical, fair
    and
  • Not present an excessive burden on any member or
    class of members

Overreaching or ill-conceived IPR policies thwart
participation and may lead to technically
inferior solutions and increased IPR uncertainty

Conclusions
  • Intel has a long history of participating in many
    standards under a varietary of licensing models
  • IPRs (especially patents) are a valuable and
    necessary asset
  • Intel makes prudent decisions regarding licensing
    our patents based on our business interests,
    support of our customers and growth of our
    industry
  • While we do seek value (especially defensive
    value) for our patents essential to implementing
    standards, royalty income is not a primary
    objective
  • Our experience is that standards depend on
    innovation and need to balance interests of
    innovators and implementers
  • Useful and novel approaches to IPR may advance
    adoption
  • Overreaching or ill-conceived IPR rules can be
    harmful
