Shirley Webster, Managing Director in the Expert Testimony Practice of Ocean Tomo, who oversees our Houston office, had the pleasure of speaking at the University of Texas’ 9th Annual Patent Law Institute last week. The two-day event, held at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, focused on the latest developments in patent law.
Shirley was on a panel, along with Gregory L. Hillyer of Feldman Gale, P.A., that focused on recent Federal Circuit Court decisions, acceptable patent damages methodology and the continuing evolution of patent damages. The presentation, titled Patent Damages Today – But What About Tomorrow, touched on four key points: factors influencing patent damages today, use of the entire market value rule, potential for use of surveys to assess whether the demand for a given product or product feature was driven by the patented technology in question and the current case law surrounding F/RAND.
