About the Course:
As was stated in the ResQNet.com v. Lansa litigation, Determining a fair and reasonable royalty is often . . . a difficult chore, seeming often to involve more the talents of a conjurer than those of a judge. Thus, this webinar provides crucial insight for harnessing surveys and quantitative analysis in performing admissible economic damages calculations.
This methodical webinar walks the listener through three permutations of Consumer Surveys—Ranking-Based Conjoint Analysis; Choice-Based Conjoint Analysis; and, Direct Queries. The program continues with a discussion of three variations of Regression Analysis - Price Premium / Hedonic Analysis; Market Share Premium Analysis; and, Merger Analysis. A comparative review of the aforementioned methods is examined in terms of methodology, outcomes and details. Insight as to the conditions under which the various methods should be used is provided.
The webinar concludes with numerous analyses of cases in which surveys and other analytical methods were properly and improperly used. Other issues addressed during this program include:
- The use of social media to determine popularity of products and patented features.
- The merits of conducting multiple surveys in silos.
- The wisdom or folly of a defendant putting forth his own damages calculation.
- Apportioning out the impact of marketing decisions taken by the patentee when determining price erosion caused by the existence of infringers.
