Join Reed Smith's Paul Gupta for his presentation entitled "Patent Remedies (Including Injunctions): The Aftermath of Recent Federal Circuit Decisions." Recent Federal Circuit and District Court decisions reflect a
trend towards damages awards based less on application of rules than on evidence of actual harm sustained. This session will review recent cases on all forms of remedies in the aftermath of recent Supreme Court Federal Circuit decisions, including the current state of the patent exhaustion doctrine. Other cases on lost profits, reasonable royalty, attorneys’ fees and other monetary damages and relief will be analyzed. The
session will also discuss the practical ability to obtain injunctive relief ten years post-eBay and recent cases like Apple v. Samsung.
