A New 'Footprint' Paradigm For Reasonable Royalty Damages
March 11, 2015

One that alleviates the anxiety of multiplying a base by a rate and wondering whether the result represents the true value of a patented feature. I propose a new "footprint" approach named after the Federal Circuit’s useful analogy from the ResQNet case.
