March 24, 2015

A modified Georgia‐Pacific analysis? A different selection of Georgia‐Pacific factors to include in the damages jury instruction for each case? A restriction on the date of hypothetical negotiation for any standard‐essential patent?

The fact that a patented invention is essential to practicing a standard does not necessitate a change in the damages analysis, if carried out properly.
