Program Description:

The five largest areas of IP – design patent, utility patent, trademark, trade secret, and copyright – each have their own distinct rules when it comes to disgorgement. Disgorgement is generally meant as a deterrence mechanism, disincentivizing infringement by removing the rewards of such infringement. This differs from an award of lost profits, which is available as a remedy, when appropriate, under all IP allegations, and is meant to compensate the owner of the IP for the amount they would have made but-for the infringement. However, after an allocation analysis, disgorgement and reasonable royalty calculations should, in theory, reflect a similar finding. This program will discuss recent Supreme Court decisions addressing disgorgement, and compare and contrast different theories of damages in intellectual property matters.
