29th General Assembly
Specially Convened Meeting
Nice, 18-19 November 1997
Amendments of the ETSI Interim Intellectual Property Rights
Agenda item: 4
Document for: Decision
The General Assembly is invited to approve the ETS/ (IPR) Policy as contained in the
Annex to this document to become definitive
December 1996 - Nice;
Minutes of the E-I-SI 27t~ General Assembly meeting 11
¯ Annex 6 Rules of Procedure - ETSI Interim IPR Policy approved by the General Assembly
at its Specially Convened Meeting held on 23 November 1994;
As the beginning of August this year document GA29(97)/SCM/03 was distributed with the
objective to transform the ETSI Interim Intellectual Property Rights Policy into a definite one.
Owing to some indications received at the ETSI Secretariat, we propose a few additional
modifications that can be considered as editorial
The modifications consist of the following aspects:
deletion of the date of approval of the IPR Policy since it will be treated from now on as
any Annexes to the ETSI Rules of Procedure;
complete deletion of the former Article 15 since Annexes to the Rules of Procedure are
modified the same way as the rest of the Rules of Procedure;
replacement of the former Article 15 by the definitions currently contained in the Annex to
the IPR Policy;
as a consequence of the above, a small modification of Article 2 (now referring to the new
Article 15 and not any more to the Annex).
Attached you will find a clean version of the revised Annex 6 to the ETSI Rules of Procedure
containing the proposed ETSI (IPR) Policy.

ETSI Intellectual Property Rights Policy
The General Assembly of ETSI has established the following Intellectual Property Rights POLICY.
Tel-ms in the POLICY which are wa’itten in capital letters shall have the meaning set forth in the Ardcle
15 entitled DEFINITIONS.
STANDARDS shalt be based on solutions which best meet the technical objectives of the
European telecommunications sector, as defined by the General Assembly. In order to farther
this objective the ETSI IPR POLICY seeks to reduce the risk to ETSI, MEMBERS, and others
applying ETSI STANDARDS, that investment in the preparation, adoption and application of
STANDARDS could be wasted as a result of an ESSENTIAL IPR for a STANDARD being
unavailable. In achieving this objective, the ETSI IPR POLICY seeks a balance between the
needs of standardization for public use in the field of telecommunications and the rights of the
owners of TPRs.
IPR helders whether members of ETSI and their AFFILIATES or third parties, should be
adequately and faMy rewarded for the use of their IPRs in the implementation of
ETSI shall take reasonable measures to ensure, as fat- as possible, that its activities which relate
to the preparation, adoption and application of STANDARDS, enable STANDARDS to be
availabie to potential users in accordance wittt the general principles of standardization.
Disclosure of IPRs
Each MEMBER shall use its reasonable endeavours to timely inform ETSI of ESSENTIAL
IPRs it becomes aware of. In particular, a IVIEMBER submitting a teclmical proposal for a
STANDARD shali, on a bona fide basis, draw the attention of ETSi to any of that MEMBER’s
IPR which might be ESSENTIAL if that proposal is adopted.
The obligations pursuant to Clause 4.1 above do however no* imply any obligation on
MEMBERS to conduct IPR searches.
Procedures for Committees
ETSI shall establish guidelines for the chairmen of COMMITTEES with respect to ESSENTIAL IPRs.

Availability of Licences
When an ESSENTIAL IPR relating to a pat~ticular STANDARD is brought to the attention of
ETSI, the Dh’ector-GeneraI of ETSI shall hm~aediately request the owner to give within thi’ee
months an undertaking in writing that it is prepared to grant in’evocable licences on fah’,
reasonable and non-discriminatoD~ temas and conditions under such IPR to at least the
MANUFACTURE, including the right to make or have made customized components and
sub-systems to the licensee*s own design for use in MANUFACTURE;
¯ soil, lease, or otherwise dispose of EQUIPMENT so MANUFACTURED;
¯ repah’, use, or operate EQUIPMENT; and
¯ use METHODS.
The above undertaking may be made subject to the condition that those who seek licences
aga’ee to reciprocate.
At the request of the European Commission and/or EFTA, initially for a specific STANDARD
or a class of STANDARDS, ETSI shall an’ange to have carried oat in a competent and thnely
masher an investigation including an IPR search, with the objective of ascertaining whether
IPRs exist or are likely to exist wNch may be or may become ESSENTLAL to a proposed
STANDARD and the possible terms and conditions of licences for such IPRs. Tiffs shall be
subject to the European Commission and/or EFTA meeting nil reasonable expenses of such an
investigation, in accordalce with detailed an’angements to be worked out with the European
Commission and/or EFTA prinr to the investigation being undertaken.
Information on IPR by ETSI
Any published STANDARD shall include information pertaining to ESSENTIAL IPRs which
are brought to the attention of ETSl prior to such publication.
ETSI shall establish appropriate procedures to allow access to information at any time with
respect to ESSENTIAL IPRs which have been brought to the attention of ETSI.
Non-availability of Licences
MEMBERS’ refusal to license
Where a MEMBER notifies ETSI that it is not prepared to license an 1PR in respect of a
STANDARD, the General Assembly shall review the requirement for that STANDARD and
satisfy itself that a viable alternative technoiogy is available for the STANDARD which:
¯ is not blocked by that IPR; and
¯ satisfies ETSI’s requh’ements.
Where, in the opinion of the General Assembly, no such viable alternative technology exists,
work on the STANDARD shall cease, and the Director-General of ETSI shall request that
MEMBER to reconsider its position. If the MEMBER decides not to withch-aw its refusal to
license the IPR, it shall infom~ the Director-General of ETSI of its decision and provide a
written explanation of its reasons for refusing to license that IPR, within three months of its
receipt of the Director-General’s request.
TILe Director-General shall then send the MEMBER’s explanation together with relevant
extracts fi’om the minutes of the General Asselnbly to the ETSI Counsellors for their
Non-availability of lieenees from fllil-d parties
Where, in respect of a STANDAILD, ETSI becomes awaze that licences are not available
a third pm’ty in accordance with Clause 6.1 above, that STANDARD shall be relented to the
Director-General of ETSI for further consideration in accordance with the following
The Dh’ector-Generai shall request fali supporting details fi’om any MEMBER who
has complained that licenees are not avaiIable in accordance with Clause 6.1 above.
page 4 of 6
The Director-General shall write to the IPR owner concerned for an explanation and
request that licences be granted according to Clause 6.1 above.
Wqaere the IPR owner refuses the Director-General’s request or does not answer the
letter witNn ttu’ee months, the Dh’ector-General shall info,an the General Assembly. A
vote shall be taken ia the General Assembly on an individual weighted basis to
immediately refer the STANDARD to the relevant COMMITTEE to modi_Sj it so that
the DR is no longer ESSENTIAL.
Where the vote ha the General Assembly does not succeed, then the General Assembly
shall, where appropriate, consult the ETSI Counsellm-s with a view to finding a
solution to the problem. In parallel, the Genel’ai Assembly may reqnest appropriate
MEMBERS to use theh" good offices to find a solution to the problem.
Where (iv) does not lead to a sofution, then the Generai Assembly shall request the
European Commission to see what further action may be appropriate, including nonrecognition ~£the STANDARD in question.
In canting out the ferego~g procedure due account shaI1 be taken of the interest of the
enterprises that have invested in the hnplementation of the STANDARD in question.
