Hartford Partner Elizabeth Alquist to Speak on Patent Damages After Lucent v. Gateway and Cornell v. HP
February 3, 2010
Elizabeth Alquist, co-chair of Day Pitney's Intellectual Property practice, will speak at a Feb. 3 audio conference on patent reform in the wake of two Federal Circuit Court of Appeals decisions that outline what is needed to establish damages for patent infringement.
In Lucent v. Gateway, the court raised the standard for patent damages and called for courts to require specific proof of reasonable royalty. In Cornell v. HP, a patent holder's ability to recover royalty on a patent was limited to the element of the product rather than the entire product.
The panel will discuss what these outcomes mean for patent holders and defendants and the impact on patent damages law.
