Connecting Dots


Reconciling the VirnetX and Summit 6 Rulings

Recent rulings by the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit have provided what may initially appear to be inconsistent guidance as to what it considers to be acceptable methodology for purposes of determining a reasonable royalty in patent infringement matters. In the matter of VirnetX, Inc. and Science Applications International Corporation, v. Cisco Systems, Inc. and Apple, Inc., use of a 50/50 split of incremental profit attributable to infringement as a starting point for the hypothetical negotiation was determined to be inappropriate. However, in the matter of Summit 6, LLC v. Samsung Electronics Co., et al. the court determined that a hypothetical negotiation construct in which “neither party has a stronger negotiating position,” a result in which the incremental “profit attributable to the infringement” is split evenly is “structurally sound [methodology] and tied to the facts of the case.” This paper is an abbreviated version of the original work, which provides insight into the methodology used in the VirnetX matter and explains how such methodology differs from the methodology we used in the Summit 6 matter.

Recent Federal Circuit Decisions Regarding Damages

January 12, 2018

”[W]e have held that a “superficial recitation of the Georgia-Pacific factors, followed by conclusory remarks, [cannot] support the jury’s verdict.” Whitserve, 694 F.3d at 31. When an expert employs the Georgia-Pacific factors, “reciting each factor and making a conclusory remark about its impact on the damages calculation before moving on does no more than tell the jury what factors a damages analysis could take into consideration.”

"That Mr. Benoit’s methodology was not peer-reviewed or published does not necessitate its exclusion. We recognize that the fact-based nature of Mr. Benoit’s damages testimony made it impractical, if not impossible, to subject the methods to peer review and publication. But '[p]ublication . . . is not a sine qua non of admissibility,” and “in some instances well-grounded but innovative theories will not have been published."

“It is not the case that the value of all conventional elements must be subtracted from the value of the patented invention as a whole when assessing damages. For a patent that combines ‘old elements,’ removing the value of all of those elements would mean that nothing would remain. In such cases, the question is how much new value is created by the novel combination, beyond the value conferred by the conventional elements alone.”
