Patent Relief

Just found out that patent injunctive relief /damages is limited to the 'value' of the sales made by the infringing party and because this is federal court you cant sue for lawyers fees.

So if you have a low value patent, or the other side isn't making any money out of it, suing for injunctive relief isn't a viable strategy.

Interesting to know.

Wonder what happens when someone rips off your technology and gives it away for free?
