What fraction of the SEPs?
From their website, they have the LTE patents from:
Cassidian, an EADS company
China Academy of Telecommunication Technology
Electronics and Telecommunications Research Institute
but there's no estimate as to what portion of the SEPs are in that pool - for instance I can be fairly confident that Alcatel-Lucent, Motorola, (Sony-)Ericsson, Huawei, ZTE, Qualcomm and even Apple hold significant volumes of SEPs between them (I suspect the SEP list runs into the thousands of patents, probably not tens of thousands, though). I wouldn't be surprised if the 350 from Nokia outweigh all the rest that they already held. (You can search for SEPs here: http://ipr.etsi.org/SearchIPRD.aspx)
So, if they get more SEP holders involved will the price stay the same? If they get no more, and this represents (for example) 10% of the SEP requirements to implement LTE, is a further €9/device the designated FRAND rate for the entire suite? Or could it be higher and still be FRAND?
Do other SEP licensors have a %age per device (benefiting low cost devices rather than high end devices who would favour a fixed rate)?
