Upcoming Webinar on FRAND Damages

Next Wednesday (December 16) I'll be participating, along with Mark Snyder of Qualcomm and Timothy Syrett of WilmerHale, in an IPO Chat Channel webinar titled FRAND Damages:  Comparing the Four Leading Cases, Including CSIRO.  Here's some information about the event from the organization's website, from which interested listeners can register if they wish:
"Wednesday, Dec. 16, 2:00pm – 3:00pm ET

"This month the Federal Circuit issued its decision in CSIRO v. Cisco that agreed-in-part and disagreed-in-part with the district court’s damages award regarding a patent essential to a WiFi standard. Our panel will compare CSIRO with three key earlier opinions that give insight into proving and determining a reasonable royalty for a standard essential patent (SEP): the Federal Circuit’s earlier decision in Ericsson v. D-Link, the Ninth Circuit’s decision in Microsoft v. Motorola, and Judge Holderman’s Northern District of Illinois decision in In Re Innovatio IP Ventures.

"Our panel includes a patent counsel at a company that owns valuable SEPs, a law firm litigator who has represented technology implementers against owners of SEPs, and a law school professor who authors a blog on patent damages. They will discuss where the opinions converge and the nuances in how they differ, and how courts are likely to view these issues in the future.

Prof. Thomas Cotter, University of Minnesota Law School
