One of the most contentious issues in the debate over patent reform is the question of how, if at all, Congress should change the way courts calculate patent damages. To understand that fight, in this program (recorded in June 2009) IP Colloquium examines a series of edited excerpts from testimony given before the Senate and, separately, the Federal Trade Commission, all on the question of damages reform. The goal was not to advocate for a particular legislative outcome, but instead to understand why damages calculations are so hard, and to explore the spectrum of possible responses.

In-studio guests include Tom Cotter and Anne Layne Farrar; and the voice clips include luminaries such as Mark Lemley and Jon Dudas. UCLA Law School’s Doug Lichtman hosts.


Patent Reform: Damages
is available online at IP Colloquium's Web site, or you can begin listening to it from the download link (below). And, as per usual, lawyers who listen can earn free CLE credit in California, New York, Texas, Illinois and several other states.
