- is the licensor obliged to offer a single patent licence if requested by the prospective licensee (i.e. can a FRAND licensor insist on a portfolio licence or can the prospective licensee demand individual licenses only for some SEPs?);
- is the licensor obliged to offer a licence on SEPs essential to a particular standard (i.e. Huawei alleges that Unwired Planet does not hold any 2G SEPs and argues that it should therefore not be required to take a licence for this standard);
- is the licensor obliged to offer a licence for SEPs relating to a particular territory if requested by the prospective licensee? (i.e. must the prospective licensee accept a worldwide licence, or can it choose the territories for which its wants to take a licence?);
- by transferring patents to Unwired Planet, there was a failure to ensure transfer of an enforceable FRAND obligation;
- by dividing its patent portfolio into two parts (Ericsson retained some patents itself and transferred some to Unwired Planet) unfair higher royalties will be earned;
- that certain terms of the sale agreement represent price-fixing clauses.
