Alerts: Our Take on Strength of Patents Involved in recent litigation?
Time and again, we find a headline reading large patent damages awarded to a plaintiff. In the recent time, though patent litigation activities have declined, but median damages awarded have surged.
To give you an example, median damages surged to $7.3mn in the last 5 years with 2015 having highest annual damages award during the last 10 years – 10.2mn.
Also, after historical Octane and Highmark decision, the average number of fee awarded under 35 U.S.C. 28 have increased from 3 to 7 per month.
All this have put companies – plaintiffs as well as defenders – under immense pressure to have a better patent litigation strategy than ever.
