Abstract

This essay reviews the Qualcomm decision made by the NDRC in 2015, a case about abusing standard essential patents. It observes that this decision essentially assessed conduct of abusing dominant positions under the framework of per se illegal. As a result, it, though possibly aiming to protect domestic smartphone producers, may quickly fail its purpose.

Keywords: Qualcomm, Standard Essential Patent, Per Se Illegal, Rule of Reason
