Patent Damages

Instructor: David L. Applegate

United States patent law is as old as the nation. Current patent code has been in force since the 1950s, offering two primary roads to financial recovery: lost profits and a “reasonable royalty.” For the past seven years, Congress has proposed but not adopted new patent damages amendments that aim to correct what many critics see as unjustified awards under the present system. This detailed and informative program provides an overview of the patent damages statutory framework, the most important case law developments, the damages provisions of the Patent Reform Act of 2011, and “false marking” law. It is available in one-hour, 1.5-hour and 2-hour formats.
