    Event Synopsis:
    Over the past several years, the law of patent damages has been evolving at a rapid pace. The Supreme Court has recently weighed in on issues relating to enhanced damages awards, as well as damages available for infringement of design patent damages. Additionally, the lower courts continue to interpret and apply some of the most significant decisions of the recent past regarding apportionment to the value of the patented technology, the calculation of lost profits, and the use of settlement agreements in determining reasonable royalty damages. These decisions have created a dynamic—and uncertain—environment for both patent holders and those accused of infringing patents. Thus, it is crucial for all parties engaged in patent licensing and litigation to be aware of the most recent trends in order to best manage the risks associated with patent litigation.

    In this LIVE Webcast, a panel of thought leaders assembled by The Knowledge Group will provide the audience with an in-depth analysis of the fundamentals as well as practical tips in patent damages law. Speakers will also provide an update on the recent trends and developments surrounding this significant topic.

    Key topics include:
    - Damages Under the Patent Act
    - Recent Court Decisions
    - Latest Trends and Developments
