Reasonable Royalty for Taiwanese Notebook Computer Manufacturer’s Patent Infringement

Accumyn’s expert provided testimony regarding a reasonable royalty in connection with the alleged infringement of a patent by a Taiwanese manufacturer of notebook computers. The patent at issue, owned by a Korean multinational, involved a method of implementing certain keyboard functionality in the notebook computer. The analysis included quantification of the alleged royalty base by model over time, comparison of profitability and incremental production costs, and determination of a reasonable royalty under U.S. statute and case precedent.

The royalty was analyzed based on the relative bargaining positions of the parties in the assumed royalty negotiation, economic analysis of the relevant market, and a detailed analysis of pricing and costs based on component changes in notebook computer models over time.
