This study deals with the necessary adaptation of Spanish law to the new European regulations on FRAND licenses and focuses on the valuation of the so-called standard-essential patents (SEP).

However, a consideration of the nature of such licenses is necessary first, that American and European doctrine put in the contractual field.
