Online CLE Patent Infringement

Join us for this Knowledge Group Online CLE Patent Infringement Webinar. The calculation of patent infringement damages has long troubled practitioners, regulators and businesses while court decisions continue to bring significant changes on the patent damages landscape. In recent notable court decisions, the U.S. Supreme Court issued an opinion that makes it easier for patent owners to win enhanced damages in a patent infringement cases. The SC also highlighted that calculating damages for design patents should not be based on the profits for the entire product if it consists of many parts, thus, changing the standard for design patent damages.
