This month the Federal Circuit issued its decision in CSIRO v. Cisco that agreed-in-part and disagreed-in-part with the district court's damages award regarding a patent essential to a WiFi standard. During this event, speakers will compare CSIRO with three key earlier opinions that give insight into proving and determining a reasonable royalty for a standard essential patent (SEP): the Federal Circuit's earlier decision in Ericsson v. D-Link, the Ninth Circuit's decision in Microsoft v. Motorola, and Judge Holderman's Northern District of Illinois decision in In Re Innovatio IP Ventures.

The panel, which includes WilmerHale Partner Tim Syrett, will discuss where the opinions converge and the nuances in how they differ, and how courts are likely to view these issues in the future.
