WesternGeco LLC v. ION Geophysical Corp., U.S., No. 16-1011, amicus brief filed 3/5/2018.
All documents are in PDF format.
A damages award for infringement under 35 U.S.C. § 271(f) should include foreign lost profits when the harm was proximately caused by domestic infringement, AIPLA argued in a Supreme Court brief filed March 5, 2018. Filed in support of neither party, the brief argues that the Supreme Court should reverse the Federal Circuit and the categorical rule it established in this case against recovering foreign lost profits. The brief also maintains that including harm from foreign conduct for full compensation under § 284 does not impermissibly extend U.S. law extraterritoriality.
