A design patent is among the most important properties of a product since it serves as a legal protection for the product’s ornamental features. However, as products have become more complex, the methodology used historically to determine damages in design patent infringement matters has been called into question. The Supreme Court’s decision in Apple v. Samsung acknowledged this issue and gave some directional insight into how design patent damages should be analyzed. However, interpreting the Court’s decision and applying it to the fact-specific scenarios of other design patent infringement matters is still evolving. With the ever-changing design patent landscape, companies and their counsel must stay informed of how various district courts and the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit are viewing design patent damages in the context of the Apple v. Samsung decision.
Join Mr. Barry Bell (Managing Director, Echelon Analytics) as he provides the audience with an historical perspective of design patent damages prior to Apple v. Samsung, an in-depth analysis of the Supreme Court’s decision, and a discussion of recent cases where Apple v. Samsung has been applied.
