Berkeley Center for Law & Technology - Patent Damages

Today, the Berkeley Center for Law & Technology emailed a notice and a paper on patent damages:

"On March 3, 2016, the Berkeley Center for Law & Technology hosted a day-long workshop on patent damages, one of the most important and contentious topics in patent law and policy. Organized by Professors Stuart Graham (Georgia Tech, Scheller College of Business), Peter Menell (BCLT Director and Berkeley Law), Carl Shapiro (Haas Business School at UC Berkeley), and Tim Simcoe (Boston University Questrom School of Business), the workshop brought together in-house counsel, litigators (from both the assertion and defense sides), patent licensing professionals, testifying expert witnesses, and academics (both law professors and economists).

Today, Profs. Graham, Menell, Shapiro and Simcoe issued a paper summarizing the workshop discussion, key findings, and ramifications for patent case management. The paper includes a background memo summarizing patent damages law prepared by Professors Thomas Cotter (Univ. of Minnesota Law School) and John Golden (Texas Law). The organizers welcome your feedback on this report and hope to continue a conversation with all interested parties regarding patent damages."
