I. Available Reliefs A patent owner may be able to obtain monetary damages 1 (primarily calculated as a reasonable royalty or lost profits), prejudgment and post-judgment interest, certain costs,2 and injunctive relief. A reasonable royalty is calculated based upon the application of a set of factors first set forth in Georgia-Pacific Corp. v. United States Plywood Corp., 318 F. Supp. 1116, 1119-20 (S.D.N.Y. 1970). If the court finds that the case is exceptional, the court may award enhanced damages up to three times the amount of damages proven 3 and attorneys’ fees.4 Entry of injunctive relief is not automatic, but requires that the patent owner prove that it has suffered irreparable harm, that money damages cannot compensate it for the injury, that the balance of hardships favors entry of an injunction, and that the public interest does not weigh against entry of an injunction.5 As set forth in greater detail below, a patent owner may also obtain a preliminary injunction early in the case proceedings to prevent infringement while the case is moving forward.
