  • New York, NY (1888PressRelease) September 08, 2016 - The Knowledge Group/The Knowledge Congress Live Webcast Series, the leading producer of regulatory focused webcasts, has announced today that Kim Schenk, Principal, Charles River Associates will speak at a 2-hour webcast entitled "Applying Patent Damages Law: 2016 Updates"

    Event Summary:
    Several recent cases have provided 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 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
