Alexandria, VA (February 10, 2011) – Patent Resources Group (PRG) will be offering a brand new one-day course titled “Patent Damages” at the upcoming Advanced Courses program being held in Naples, Florida from April 10-16, 2011.

Patent damages, an essential remedy for patent holders, is a crucial area of the law for all patent practitioners to understand, whether representing patentees or alleged infringers. This course will comprehensively cover the current state of the law regarding patent damages and will equip patent practitioners with the tools necessary to knowledgeably and expertly advocate their clients’ damages demands.

Specific topics to be covered, among others, include:

  • The underlying basis for patent damages
  • How to calculate a reasonable royalty
  • Establishment of lost profits in a patent damages case
  • Evaluation of forum-shopping considerations
  • Enhanced damages
  • Innovative damage arguments
  • Comparative analysis of U.S. patent damages to patent damages in other countries

The faculty members for this course are:

All three instructors have been involved in the damages phase of numerous litigation cases, including ivi4 in its successful affirmation of an over $200 million verdict against Microsoft; Crucible Steel Company in its successful effort to obtain an injunction and travel damages against Kloster Speed Steel; and 3M in a dispute with Dentsply, where a creative defensive damage argument resulted in a substantially lower mediation and settlement award.

This course will be offered on April 13, 2011. This is the only opportunity to take this course this year, as it will not be offered at any of PRG’s other 2011 Advanced Courses programs. The program is being held at the Naples Grande Beach Resort (formerly The Registry) in Naples, Florida. Fourteen other courses will be offered over the course of the program from April 10-16.
