Challenges and solutions in the software market

29.11.2019

Stibbe is organising a seminar in Amsterdam on 29 November 2019 concerning recent developments in the software market, potential new opportunities offering the right to respond to powerful suppliers, and the question of how these developing resources can be used effectively. 

Challenges and solutions in the software market

The IT market is rumbling. Dutch CIOs recently sounded the alarm in the Financieele Dagblad about strangulation contracts, aggressive audit practices and huge claims for supplementary payments from large software suppliers. A counter-argument is that CIOs are not naïve. Is there a market failure or immaturity on the demand side? Is this discussion still relevant in the transformation to the cloud? What can the CIO do and what (new) resources can they use against powerful suppliers? When does it make sense to litigate? During the seminar, attendees will be given insights and tips from various jurisdictions, as well as a glimpse into an ongoing lawsuit in the US.

Pay-for-delay: brightened lines between object and effect restrictions

Short Reads - In its first pay-for-delay case, the ECJ has clarified the criteria determining whether settlement agreements between a patent holder of a pharmaceutical product and a generic manufacturer may have as their object or effect to restrict EU competition law. The judgment confirms the General Court’s earlier rulings in Lundbeck and Servier (see our October 2016 and December 2018 newsletters) in which it was held that pay-for-delay agreements (in these cases) constituted a restriction ‘by object’.
