Michael Wu contributed to the roundtable discussion on "Discussion of Hot Issues such as FRAND Injunctions, Anti-Injunctions, and Anti-Suit Injunctions in SEP Litigation". Michael Wu stated that the issue of whether to apply the proportionality principle in determining an injunction in SEP litigation is controversial. Under the framework of China's patent law, the court usually judges the fault of each party and orders the defendant to stop the infringement accordingly. However, in some cases, an injunction may bring unreasonable difficulties to the licensee and be disproportionate to the interests of the patentee, therefore, the proportionality principle needs to be considered. If the patentee has already monetized the patent, paying the licensing fee may provide sufficient compensation, and there is no need to issue an injunction. For small-scale licensees, the interest on delayed payment of the licensing fee can be taken into account to avoid direct injunctions from the court and to resolve conflicts through negotiation as much as possible.
