**Free Lunchtime CLE Event**
APABA-SV IP Committee invites you to the presentation "Winning a Reasonable Royalty Case after Apple v. Motorola: A Case Study, IV v. Xilinx".
To effectively present or defend against royalty damages claims, attorneys must understand the recent court decisions and the issues that the decisions raise. In the last few years, the Federal Circuit has been closely examining the methodology and evidence used to prove reasonable royalty damages. In response, the district courts have begun looking more carefully and favorably at Daubert challenges to damages experts. The Federal Circuit's recent decision in Apple v. Motorola has, however, called into question the rigor with which courts have been performing the gatekeeping process.
Join APABA-SV and attorneys from Jones Day's Silicon Valley and Irvine offices as we discuss proven strategies for challenging patentees' damages expert reports. Having recently obtained the exclusion of Intellectual Ventures' damages expert report in IV v. Xilinx, the panelists will share lessons they learned in challenging patentees' damages claims through Daubert and summary judgment motions. They will also touch on established royalty, entire market value rule, smallest saleable patent practicing unit, book of wisdom, expert do-overs, presenting a damages case without an expert, and the tactics that secured victory.
This event is sponsored by Jones Day. Lunch will be provided.
