In the Federal Circuit’s Uniloc USA v. Microsoft ruling in 2011, the Court rejected the use of the “25 percent rule” as a basis to determine reasonable royalty damages and reiterated that expert testimony “must carefully tie proof of damages to the claimed invention’s footprint in the market place.” It has been made clear under the Uniloc decision, along with other decisions dealing with patent damages (Lucent Technologies and ResQNet.com)
A number of questions, including the magnitude of the invention’s footprint, should be addressed first. This further highlights the need for each party in a patent dispute, to evaluate every potential area where a patented invention may increase value over the next-best non-infringing alternatives. This analysis should be performed as early as possible and in as much information as it can provide.
In this two-hour LIVE CLE Webcast, a panel of distinguished professionals and thought leaders will help companies and intellectual property lawyers understand the important aspects of this significant topic. They will provide an in-depth discussion of the Reasonable Royalty Footprint approach. Speakers will also offer best practices in implementing this approach while maintaining compliance with applicable laws.
Key topics include:
§ Implications of a Line of Cases to the Reasonable Royalty Damages Law
§ Methodologies for Reasonable Royalty Damages
§ Uncertainty with the Base-Times-Rate Approach
§ Determination of an Invention’s Footprint
§ The 'Footprint' Paradigm Approach
§ Regulatory Updates and Forecasts
§ Best Implementation and Compliance Practices
