Lex Machina's Patent Litigation Damages Report

Here is a link to the report, which was released last week and just came to my attention.  I'm sure I'll have more to say about it in the days to come, but I also imagine that many of my readers will want to take a look at it as soon as possible.  According to the introduction:
This report surveys the landscape of patent litigation damages awarded in U.S. District Court cases filed from January 1, 2000 through December 31, 2013. It analyzes these damages awards across districts, judges, parties and law firms. To gain greater insight, this report focuses primarily on compensatory damages (both reasonable royalties and lost profits), enhanced damages, and awards of attorneys’ fees.
The last few years have seen some of the largest awards in patent litigation history - awards that have captured headlines and brought patent damages into mainstream public debate. This report seeks to inform that debate and provide patent litigators with information they can use to set litigation strategies, develop case tactics, and produce results.
