  • New York, NY (1888PressRelease) September 02, 2016 - The Knowledge Group/The Knowledge Congress Live Webcast Series has announced today that Alan Cox, Senior Vice President, NERA Economic Consulting will speak at a 2-hour webcast entitled "Applying Patent Damages Law: 2016 Updates" This two-hour event is scheduled on September 7, 2016 @ 12:00 PM to 2:00 PM (ET).

    Event Summary:
    Several recent cases have provided some guidance on what courts will accept in the calculation of reasonable royalties. In Summit 6, LLC v. Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., the CAFC accepted a valuation of a patented feature based upon the frequency with which the product was used. In VirnetX v. Apple the CAFC stated that apportionment may be needed below the level of the "smallest salable unit," when multiple patents or technologies read on that unit. Ericsson v. D-Link addressed issues of "royalty stacking" and the need to attribute to a standard essential patent only the incremental benefits of the technology described in the patent, excluding the value of the standard itself. CSIRO v. Cisco provides some guidance on the use of real-world comparable licenses in determining a reasonable royalty and the appropriate royalty base.

    Key topics that will be addressed by the panel include:
    The Use of Surveys and Patent Citation Analysis in Patent Cases
    Determining ongoing royalties for post-verdict infringement
    Update on the Entire Market Value Rule: Recent Federal Circuit and District Court Decisions
    Comparability/Admissibility Issues Pertinent to Patent Damages
    Enhanced Damages: The Supreme Court Weighs In On The Tortured History Of Remedies For Willful Infringement, And The Practical Impact Of Halo
