"Is Georgia Pacific Still Alive?," Panelist, Federal Circuit Bar Association Bench & Bar, November 2016.
The Georgia Pacific factors for determining reasonable royalty patent damages were born in 1970. This was before PCs, smart phones, driverless cars, biosimilar drugs, genetic engineering, and many other innovations that fill our daily lives. Are these factors still alive today? Should they be? Do they lead to fair and realistic results? Are they still a sound methodology for determining patent damages today? If not, what would be better?
