This book provides a concise introduction to patent damages law. I focus on topics that may be of interest to economists who are new to the field. This book is primarily about utility patents. Thus, when I discuss patents without qualification, the reader should assume I am discussing utility patents.
I am not an attorney and you should not regard the information in this book as legal advice. I make every effort to minimize subjective interpretation of the law. Still, I do not guarantee that effort was entirely successful. The statements in this book do not reflect my opinion on legal matters and instead provide summaries of cited captions. Case law is continuously evolving and the material herein can not reflect legal precedent issued after the time of writing. Always refer to the original sources. Use this material at your own risk.
