Alston & Bird is a sponsor of this event hosted by the University of Southern California Gould School of Law. Jon Gordon and Rachel Capoccia serve on the planning committee of this event and Rachel will serve as the moderator for the breakout session, "Recent Developments for Patent Damages in the Wake of Uniloc and ResQNet," 1:30 p.m. This session will address the following questions.
• How are plaintiffs estimating reasonable royalty rates after the demise of the 25% Rule of Thumb?
• How have plaintiffs and defendants wrestled with proving the importance of the patented invention to the overall accused product (or lack thereof) and the proper apportionment of damages under the Entire Market Value rule since Lucent and i4i?
• What is the role of licenses in royalty calculations and the role of litigation-based licenses since ResQNet?
The session will also address other practical issues related to presentation and management of damages in patent trials.
