Event Synopsis:

Section 284 of the US Patent Code mandates that a patentee is entitled to royalty damages for an infringement had there been an infringement suit or none. The minimum grant that the claimant can recover if there had been no suit is the royalty that it and the infringer have agreed upon. Furthermore, in an event where the patentee cannot prove any actual damages, he is still entitled of the said mandate given that the court has assessed the infringing sales. This class is called “reasonable royalty damages.”

However, some consider the terminology as confusing and misleading. Questions arise as to the “reasonability” of reasonable royalty. In addition, while the Federal Circuit has approved two approaches – the Hypothetical Negotiation and the Analytical Approach – it has stressed that there is no single way to determine reasonable royalty damages.

On a lighter note, however, possible approaches which were not explicitly approved by the Federal Circuit such as Rule of Thumb, Established Royalty for the Patent, Many Licenses in a Small Range of Rates, and Cost Savings have already been used in some cases.

In this two-hour LIVE Webcast, a panel of key thought leaders organized by The Knowledge Group will provide the audience with an in-depth discussion of the Reasonable Royalty in Patent Damages. Speakers will also help them understand the potential and the approved approaches in determining reasonable royalty damages in patent infringements.

Some of the major topics that will be covered in this course are:

§  Overview of Reasonable Royalty

§  U.S. And Canadian Law Compared and Contrasted

§  Hypothetical Negotiation

§  Institutional Effects on Calculations

§  Extraterritoriality Issues

§  Apportionment Analysis

§  FRAND Compliance
