Under Section 284 of the Patent Statute, a patentee is entitled to damages sufficient to compensate for any infringement. The said compensation cannot be less than a reasonable royalty or the amount the infringer and a patent holder would have agreed upon had there been no infringement suit. In cases where actual damages cannot be proven, a patentee can still recover compensation for infringing sales through the “non-lost profits” damages, called “reasonable royalty” damages.
Over the years, courts have been critical in the determination of patent infringement reasonable royalty damages. There is no one methodology to determine “reasonable royalty” damages, and currently, the Federal Circuit has approved two different approaches. With the infringing products' increasing complexities, new tools and new ways to use older tools are needed in determining reasonable royalties.
This course offers an overview of the methodologies and latest issues on reasonable royalty damages in U.S. patent litigation. The panel of thought leaders and practitioners assembled by The Knowledge Group will delve into the current trends and recent court rulings involving the Determination of Reasonable Royalty Damages. Speakers will also explore the potential pitfalls and best practices in a rapidly evolving legal climate.
Key topics include:
- Overview of Reasonable Royalty Damages
- Methodologies in Determining Reasonable Royalties
- Recent Developments and Application to Multi-Patented Products
- Notable Court Rulings
- Potential Pitfalls
