Why or why not should a company or an individual declare a patent as SEP? In which regions do SEPs work and what about in other regions? What novel techniques may serve the identification of SEPs? Training of machine learning to differ between SEPs and nSEPs? Comparing patents to technical standards?  Analyzing patent characteristics to detect path dependencies which serve standard setting characteristics?
