What Has Happened to the Value of Patents?
Jerry A. Riedinger, Partner, Perkins Coie LLP
The value of patents has changed dramatically in the 32 years since the creation of the Federal Circuit. Some of those changes have occurred because of decisions by the Federal Circuit refining damages calculations, and some have occurred because of Federal Circuit and Supreme Court decisions on other aspects of patent law. Still other value changes have resulted from legislative upheaval, from procedural changes in the courts, and from changing strategies of patent owners. This program will explore how those changes have collectively impacted the value of patents over the last three decades.
