When a patent has been infringed, there's usually a price to pay, whether it's the result of a trial verdict or a negotiated settlement. Even when compensation for patent infringement is a certainty, determining the right amount is a complex matter involving the interplay of many legal and financial variables. This work provides a complete, concise and detailed guide. It explains each step, from a finding of infringment to a determination of damages. The process starts with determining the damages period and damages base, from both a product and a geographic perspective. Next, the appropriate theory-reasonable royalty or lost profits-is applied. Then enhancements or limitations are considered, as well as the likelihood and effect of an injunction. shows you the method used, the possible variations, the unique patent law doctrines that may apply, and the strategies to consider in seeking terms most advantageous to your client. The book also examines how awards of damages are treated under accounting rules, and discusses the admissibility of evidence from expert witnesses respecting damages. (Inventory #: 69582)
