APABA Silicon Valley IP Committee Presents: "Patent Infringement Reasonable Royalty Damages: Apportion the Increment?"
Monday, November 23, 2015
The APABA Silicon Valley IP Committee is proud to present the event "Patent Infringement Reasonable Royalty Damages: Apportion the Increment?"
In any patent infringement matter, one of the first questions that must be addressed is: “What is our exposure?” Over the years, this seemingly simple question has proven difficult to answer in view of how differently patent infringement plaintiffs and defendants have approached damages calculations. Although a number of recent Federal Circuit decisions have addressed patent damages calculation methodologies, some significant areas remain unresolved. One such area is highlighted by a recent decision in Good Technology Corp. v. MobileIron Inc. , in which the Court addressed the propriety of a reasonable royalty theory that allocated 100 percent of an accused infringer’s incremental profits to the patentee. The Court’s decision sparked a series of articles on both sides of the issue, and in our presentation, you will hear debate from the articles’ authors and commentary from the expert whose opinion who sparked the debate.
Registration required. RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org before November 19.
Generously sponsored by Gibson Dunn.
