  •  Zhongfa Ma    


There exist the close relationships between technology standards and patented technology licensing. Whether a technology standard contains a specific patented technology solution or not, there is always a patented technology licensing implied: patented technology licensing is a prerequisite for the existence and development of technology standards, and technology standards create a good many of potential chances for patented technology licensing. Furthermore, patentees achieve large-scale profits by means of licensing technologies through a standard mainly in form of a patent pool, which is realized by know-how licensing behind the patented technology licensing involved in the standard.
