Intellectual Property – Automotive Die Design Software Patent Infringement (U.S.)

Date 06 October, 2018

Background

MDD was engaged on behalf of the accused infringer in a patent case involving software modules used in the design of stamping dies for OEM automotive body parts.

Background
Background

 

The plaintiff presented its damages claim in the form of lost profits, price erosion, and foreign currency exchange losses on the accused sales made to customers in the U.S. and overseas markets.

Situation

The damages study analyzed the marketing and sales of the patented and accused products including the differing capabilities, functionality and customers’ use of the products. The study also examined the existing licensing relationship between the patentee and its sister companies selling the patented products. The study addressed acceptable non-infringing alternatives available to the infringer on the accused sales to overseas customers and the influence on the hypothetical negotiation.

Results

Shortly after filing the rebuttal damages report, they agreed that our investigations and analysis accurately reflected the damages, and the claim was resolved accordingly.
