The Federal Circuit in recent years has been increasingly vigilant in requiring patentees to provide solid proof of reasonable royalty damages, especially with regard to the application of the Entire Market Value Rule (i.e., claiming royalties on the entire value of the infringing product) and the use of other patent licenses as “comparable licenses” when determining the royalty rate. Given this apparent increased level of scrutiny, attorneys and experts need to be proactive, diligent and comprehensive in developing their damages strategies and damages discovery strategies and resulting reasonable royalty damages analyses must be thorough and comprehensive. In this two-hour live webcast, panel members will summarize key Federal Circuit cases that impact reasonable royalty damages and discuss implications of the cases and strategies to consider when conducting discovery of damages related information (i.e., document requests, interrogatories, requests for admissions, depositions, and independent research) and in either developing damages analyses or analyzing and critiquing damages analyses of adverse parties.
