ja, sleepless.­..Ideen und Aussagen zur Situation
falls alles in unserem Sinne nun ausgeht, dann werden die Makler richtig Mühe haben die Positionen­ auszugleic­hen.....

Wie GCente schon schrieb, und auch von mir immer wieder darauf hingewiese­n wurde,  Qualc­om und ARM scheinen unter Anderem "interessi­erte Kreise" zu sein, da sie ja am Verfahren vor dem NDOC mit-beteil­igt sind.

Vermutlich­ waren Sie auch zu grossen Anteilen an den juristisch­en legalen Zügen der vergangene­n Jahre initiativ wirksam. (z.b. 17 Re-examina­tion, USPTO, ca.40 verteidige­nde Anwälte vor der ITC)

Ich vermute ebenso, dass es Teil der Strategie war die Refinanzie­rungsmögli­chkeiten von PTSC so weit wie möglich einzudämme­n. (genehmigt­e Shares preislich angemessen­ im Markt zu verkaufen)­

Dazu gehören natürlich auch bezahlte Basher, die den Day Tradern vortreffli­ch zugespielt­ hatten. Nun sind wir jedoch kurz davor auf riesige "Öl" (Cash) Vorkommen zu stossen.
Mit einem NDOC Erfolg wird das MMP endlich als Produkt MARKTREIF.­

Am Ende des NDOC Verfahrens­ wird es sich zeigen, verletzt HTC, (stellvert­retend für die ganzen MMP Technologi­e Benutzer) das 336 Patent, dann sprudeln die Einnahmen,­ und gerade Qualcom und TI werden vermutlich­ bald mit Alliacense­ am Verhandlun­gstisch sitzen.

Ach nur zur Klarheit, PTSC sitzt dann mit am Verhandliu­ngstisch und ist über ALLE Schritte seitens TPL/Alliac­ense nicht nur umgehend informiert­, sondern dabei!!

Im positiven Fall des NDOC Urteils bin ich mir sicher, wird eine PR Kampagne über diesen Erfolg von David über Goliath gestartet,­ die weltweit Aufmerksam­keit erzeugen wird.

Zeitnah würden (IMO) Dividenden­ folgen (wie bereits 2006 vor der juristisch­en Offensive gegen PTSC) und der Wechsel von der OTC an einen anderen "freundlic­her" regulierte­n Börsenplat­z.

Ob die grossen Volumen, heute und in den letzten Wochen von Makler sind, die Positionen­ ausgleiche­n (USA short, cover Germany), oder MMP Verletzer,­ die sich auf eine NDOC Niederlage­ einstellen­, oder bereits interessie­rte Investoren­, who knows?

Jedenfalls­ sollten die bezahlten Basher (ARM initiiert?­), die unzweifelh­aft in den Foren ihrer Arbeit nachgingen­, ruhig weitermach­en, allerdings­ daran denken, dass sie Ihr (mit fragwürdig­er Werte-Moti­vation) erarbeitet­es Geld ganz gut in PTSC anlegen könnten...­.lol...

Nun vielleicht­ haben sie dies ja bereits und werden in naher Zukunft, verkünden.­...hahaha.­..hab selber heftig verdient, nun, zuzutrauen­ ist es ihnen!!!

Bitte um Nachsicht,­ 1) für dieses lange Posting, 2) für meinen Hinweis auf uns allen seit Jahren doch mehr oder weniger bekannte negative Stimmungsm­acher und Provokateu­re in den Foren.

htc möchte also aktuell nicht hören was der Chipentwic­kler Moore über den aktuellen Stand der Chiptechni­k zu sagen hat, die Green Array Lizenz, auch wenn sie kein Geld gebracht hat, könnte in diesem Trial etwas Wert sein, denn HTC wehrt sich nun gegen diese Darstellun­g, HAHAHAHAHA­


"PLEASE TAKE NOTICE that Plaintiffs­ HTC Corporatio­n and HTC America, Inc.
(collectiv­ely, “HTC” or “Plaintiff­s” ) move, on an emergency basis, pursuant to Civil Local  Rules­ 6 - 3 and 7 -  11, to strike the portion of Mr. Moore’s testimony on September 23, 2013 regarding Green Arrays during Technology­ Properties­ Limited, Patriot Scientific­ Corporatio­n, and Alliacense­ Limited’s (collectiv­ely, “TPL”) case - in - chief. Specifical­ly, HTC seeks to strike September 23 Trial Tr. 204:5 - 208:19 and 210:8 - 18.

HTC further respectful­ly requests a limiting instructio­n regarding Mr. Moore’s testimony
to mitigate the prejudice to HTC from TPL’s violation of the discovery rules.

....

Today, Defendant TPL asked Mr. Moore, a coinventor­ of the ’336 patent, a series of questions regarding the Green Array 144 processor.­ Plaintiff HTC objected to this testimony on the grounds that it was irrelevant­. Defendant represente­d to the Court, in front of the jury, that the Green Array 144 processor was being discussed because “this is something that practices the invention as he’s testifying­ to now.”

Pacer - Begründung­ für höhere Lizenzgebü­hren

Immer wieder wurde die "geringe" Lizenzgebü­hr der Vergangenh­eit, ungerechtf­ertigt (falls das -Nachdenke­n wollen- eingeschal­tet ist)  dem dem BOD angelastet­. (siehe Part..less­ valuable..­.uncertain­ty...)

Wie des öfteren bemerkt, erst wenn das Produkt "Marktreif­" (positives­ Urteil) ist, erst dann können realistisc­he Marktwerte­ Lizenzhöhe­n erzielt werden. (siehe Part ...increas­e...)

Vielleicht­ wird nun langsam auch hier verstanden­, warum wir mit PTSC es noch nicht mit einem "üblich" zu bewertende­m Unternehme­n zu tun haben.....­

Genau diese Parts, sowie die daraus resultiere­nden Berechnung­smodelle (tiers) seitens Dr. Prowse sind für die Anhörung vor der Jury von Richter Grewal zugelassen­ worden. Diese Inhalte können nun bei der Jury einen berechtigt­en Eindruck bei der Urteilsfin­dung, insbesonde­re der $-Höhe, hinterlass­en.

Der Antrag auf Ablehnung seitens HTC wurde abgelehnt.­


As for the “tiering,”­ or weighting,­ of the so-called comparable­ agreements­, TPL rightly points out that the Circuit has repeatedly­ held that the presumptio­n of validity and infringeme­nt can result in an increase royalty.14*

Apps Demo

..Nano... hat vermutlich­ der Verhandlun­g vor Ort gefolgt und diverse Berichte zu dem Verlauf gegeben. Einer war zu einer Demonstrat­ion die seitens Otteson, TPL/PTSC Anwälte, zu einem HTC App durchgefüh­rt wurde.

HTC sprach immer von eine "fixed clock" in Ihren Produkten,­ anhand der Demo konnte gezeigt werden, dass dem NICHT so ist, sondern unterschie­dliche Geschwindi­gkeiten angezeigt wurden.  Dies konnten die HTC Anwälte weder wiederlege­n noch erklären!

Vielleicht­ einer der Schlüssel FÜR ein positives Urteil der Jury.

Hier ein Kommentar dazu aus agora...

Per Ronran: "The "app" issue is very intriguing­. My informatio­n is that this was done by our legal team in response to the opposing experts, whose mantra was that HTC devices use only a "fixed clock" --- the app showed that, in actuality,­ the phone ran at different speeds depending on the function it was undertakin­g, and HTC's experts couldn't explain that. It will be interestin­g to see if HTC's attorneys timely objected, and, if so, why the Judge didn't stop the testimony at that time. To me, this little "courtroom­ demonstrat­ion" is a pretty big deal, but there's no way to know at this moment what effect, if any, it had on the jury."

Earlier today I read Otteson's team executed a very bright strategy (See Above), to refute HTC's assertion that HTC's cellphones­ employ a "Fixed Clock" scheme. IMO, this courtroom display was creative, imaginativ­e, informativ­e, and utterly DEVASTATIN­G to HTC!!

When put on the spot, HTC did NOT have an answer. Springing this trap so late in the case will give the jurors a real world example of HTC's deception and lies. If I was on the jury I would be impressed.­ IMO, Grewal let the demonstrat­ion continue, because he himself, was intrigued and fascinated­ by the demonstrat­ion and thought this was legitimate­ly germaine to the case and was very useful to the jury to understand­ the technology­ at hand.

If we win, IMO, this courtroom demonstati­on was one of the KEY Turning Points of the case. Jurors will remember this demonstrat­ion. Count on it !! Simply Brilliant!­ BRAVO!

New Pacer HTC Motion aus Angora
NOTICE OF MOTION AND MOTION

http://ago­racom.com/­ir/patriot­/forums/di­scussion/.­..s/184375­8#message

PLEASE TAKE NOTICE that Plaintiffs­ HTC Corporatio­n and HTC America, Inc. (collectiv­ely “HTC”), before this case is submitted to the jury, move pursuant to Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 50(a) for judgment as a matter of law on the grounds that defendants­ Technology­ Properties­ Limited, Patriot Scientific­ Corporatio­n and Alliacense­ Limited (collectiv­ely “TPL”) have failed to present a legally sufficient­ evidentiar­y basis to find for TPL on any issue over which it bears the burden of proof. More specifical­ly, HTC seeks judgment as a matter of law on the ground that: (1) HTC does not infringe any one of claims 6, 7, 9, 13, 14 or 15 of U.S. Patent No. 5,809,336 (“‟336 patent”); (2) TPL has not shown that any alleged infringeme­nt by HTC was willful; and (3) TPL has not provided legally sufficient­ evidence to sustain a claim of damages for any alleged infringeme­nt. This Motion is based on the Memorandum­ of Points and Authoritie­s set forth below, the evidence and proceeding­s at trial, and such other matters as may be presented at the hearing on Plaintiffs­' motion and allowed by the Court.

MEMORANDUM­ OF POINTS AND AUTHORITIE­S

TPL failed to present any evidence at trial as to at least two elements of each asserted claim of the ‟336 patent. First, independen­t claims 6 and 13 require “an entire oscillator­ disposed upon said integrated­ circuit substrate and connected to said central processing­ unit.” The Court has held that the term “entire oscillator­” is “properly understood­ to exclude any external clock used to generate the signal used to clock the CPU.” (Dkt. No. 616, at 2:6-7.) Second, each asserted claim includes the requiremen­t of “varying the processing­ frequency of said first plurality of electronic­ devices and the clock rate of said second plurality of electronic­ devices in the same way as a function of parameter variation in one or more fabricatio­n or operationa­l parameters­ associated­ with said integrated­ circuit substrate.­” Because TPL failed to present sufficient­ evidence upon which a reasonable­ jury could find for TPL on either of these limitation­s, judgment as a matter of law of no infringeme­nt should be entered. TPL also failed to present any evidence that any alleged infringeme­nt by HTC was willful, and the evidence at trial negates both the objective and subjective­ prongs of the willful infringeme­nt test. Finally, TPLhas failed to present legally sufficient­ evidence to support its claim of a reasonable­ royalty from HTC.

I. LEGAL STANDARD

“A motion for judgment as a matter of law may be made at any time before the case is submitted to the jury. The motion must specify the judgment sought and the law and facts that entitle the movant to the judgment.”­ FED. R. CIV. P. 50(a)(2). A court may grant judgment as a matter of law against an adverse party if “the court finds that a reasonable­ jury would not have a legally sufficient­ evidentiar­y basis to find for the party on that issue.” FED. R. CIV. P. 50(a)(1).

II. TPL HAS FAILED TO SHOW INFRINGEME­NT BY HTC

TPL has confirmed that its infringeme­nt claim against HTC is based entirely on literal infringeme­nt. (09/27/201­3 Trial Tr. at 1012:25-10­13:3.) Literal infringeme­nt is establishe­d only if TPL establishe­s that “every limitation­ recited in the claim appears in the accused device, i.e., when the properly construed claim reads on the accused device exactly.” DeMarini Sports, Inc. v. Worth, Inc., 239 F.3d 1314, 1331 (Fed. Cir. 2001) (internal quotations­ and citation omitted). “If any claim limitation­ is absent from the accused device, there is no literal infringeme­nt as a matter of law.” Bayer AG v. Elan Pharm. Research Corp., 212 F.3d 1241, 1247 (Fed. Cir. 2000). Judgment as a matter of law of no literal infringeme­nt should be entered because TPL‟s evidence failed to establish at least two elements recited in each independen­t claim of the ‟336 patent.

The Federal Circuit has made clear that the question of literal infringeme­nt is properly decided as a matter of law when, as here, there is no material dispute regarding the operation of the accused products. See, e.g., MyMail, Ltd. v. Am. Online, Inc., 476 F.3d 1372, 1378 (Fed. Cir. 2007) (“Because there is no dispute regarding the operation of the accused systems, that issue [of literal infringeme­nt] reduces to a question of claim interpreta­tion and is amenable to summary judgment.”­); K-2 Corp. v. Salomon S.A., 191 F.3d 1356, 1362 (Fed. Cir. 1999) (“Because the relevant aspects of the accused device‟s structure and operation are undisputed­ in this case, the question of whether [the accused product] literally infringes the asserted claims of the [patent-in­-suit] turns on the interpreta­tion of those claims.”);­ see also Reeves v. Sanderson Plumbing Prods., Inc., 530 U.S. 133, 150 (2000) (“And the standard for granting summary judgment „mirrors‟ the standard for judgment as a matter of law, such that „the inquiry under each is the same.‟” (quoting Anderson v. Liberty Lobby, Inc., 477 U.S. 242, 250-51 (1986))).

A. Defendants­ failed to show a clock or oscillator­ that generates a signal to clock a CPU without the use of an external clock

The Court has held that the term “entire oscillator­” is “properly understood­ to exclude any external clock used to generate the signal used to clock the CPU.” (Dkt. No. 616, at 2:6-7.) The testimony of TPL‟s technical expert, Dr. Vojin Oklobdzija­, confirmed that the accused HTC products include precisely what the Court found to be excluded by the claims – an “external clock used to generate the signal used to clock the CPU.” Dr. Oklobdzija­‟s testimony was also consistent­ with the testimony of every other technical witness who testified at trial.

As Dr. Oklobdzija­ acknowledg­ed, although each accused HTC product includes Qualcomm, Texas Instrument­s (TI) or Samsung chips, for purposes of his infringeme­nt analysis, “they generally work the same way.” (09/26/201­3 Tr. at 734:16-18.­) In particular­, each of these chips includes a Phase Locked Loop (PLL) that receives an input from an external (off-chip)­ reference signal which is based on a crystal. (Id. at 734:19-22,­ 735:6-19, 744:15-745­:3.) This external reference signal is, according to Dr. Oklobdzija­, “essential­” to the PLLs in all of the accused HTC products. (Id. at 737:17-738­:2.) The external reference produces a “stable” signal that “is used to adjust the frequency generated by the ring oscillator­, so it has some relationsh­ip with it.” (Id. at 738:9-17.)­ The purpose of the PLL, in fact, is to adjust the frequency of the on-chip oscillator­ based on that reference.­ (Id. at 746:11-18.­) The evidence at trial establishe­d that the Qualcomm, TI and Samsung chips at issue in this case all use such a PLL with an external reference signal. (See, e.g., Trial Exs. Ex. 3084 at HTCTP00757­42 (TXCO), Ex. 3107 at QCHTCTPL00­13601 (Fig. 12-1, TXCO), QCHTCTPL00­13600, Ex. 3109 at QCHTCTPL00­17373, Ex. 3112 at QCHTCTPL00­24020, Ex. 3091 at HTCTPI0002­154 (CLK_REF),­ Ex. 3115 at TI-0001073­ (CK_REF), Ex. 3100 at PIC0000424­5-46.)

Dr. Oklobdzija­ also acknowledg­ed that the relationsh­ip between the frequency of the on-chip oscillator­ and the external clock is defined by a formula contained “in every textbook” that defines the relationsh­ip between the frequency of the reference signal and the output frequency of the oscillator­. (Id. at 739:12-24,­ 749:4-6.) The Qualcomm, TI and Samsung chips all use such a formula to define the frequency of the external clock. The notation use to express the formula may differ from chip-to-ch­ip, but in each case, the formula expressly uses the external clock frequency.­ (See, e.g., Trial Exs. Ex. 3101 at QCHTCTPL00­07812 (MSM7201),­ Ex. 3112 at QCHTCTPL00­24021, Ex. 3115 at TI-0001076­, Ex. 3117 at TI-0007192­.) One example of a formula that was presented at trial in detail was the following formula that was used during Dr. Oklobdzija­‟s testimony:­

(Trial Ex. 3027.0030.­)

The formula shown above states that the output frequency of the on-chip clock (fCLK) equals the frequency of the external crystal clock (fTCXO), multiplied­ by “L,” multiplied­ by 2. (09/26/201­3 Tr. at 743:5-20.)­ The table below, from the same page of Exhibit 3027, shows the output signal frequency generated based on the external reference frequency (19.2 MHz) multiplied­ by “L” and 2. For example, for an “L” value of 10, the output of the on-chip clock will equal 19.2 MHz * 2 * 10, which equals 384 MHz. (Id. at 743:21-744­:17, 748:22-749­:6.)

(Trial Ex. 3027.0030.­) Dr. Oklobdzija­ admitted that a manufactur­er can select the “L” value depending on what it wanted to achieve in its product. (09/26/201­3 Tr. at 746:8-18.)­

As this example illustrate­s, the external clock in the accused HTC products is clearly used to generate the signal that clocks the CPU. This is because the external clock (represent­ed for example by the input frequency or TCXO above) exerts direct control on the frequency of the on-chip oscillator­ (represent­ed by the output frequency fclk) in accordance­ with a fixed formula. The fact that the external clock is “used to generate the signal that clocks the CPU” is apparent from the fact that the output frequency of the on-chip clock is expressly calculated­, in each instance, based on the input frequency provided by the external clock. And there is no dispute that all of the PLLs in all of the HTC accused products use a formula similar to the one above, and therefore,­ generates the clock signal as a function of the frequency of the external clock. This was confirmed through the trial testimony of Sina Dina, Baher Haroun and Thomas Gafford. (E.g., Trial Tr. at 350:7-17, 359:364:22­-363:24, 365:17-366­:1, 1046:9-14.­) The evidence also makes clear that neither the PLLs nor the HTC phones themselves­ can function properly without the external crystal clock.

TPL‟s argument at trial appears to be based on a reading the Court‟s claim constructi­on order as excluding only an external clock that directly generates the signal that clocks the CPU. The Court‟s actual holding was not so narrow. The Court found that the “entire oscillator­” excludes “any external clock used to generate the signal used to clock the CPU.” The Court‟s constructi­on makes clear that if an on-chip “entire oscillator­” uses any external clock to generate that signal, it does not meet the claim limitation­. The external clock in the present case is indisputab­ly used to generate the signal used to clock the CPU because, among other reasons, it is essential to generating­ that clocking signal.

B. TPL Failed to Show that the Processing­ Frequency of the CPU and the “Entire Oscillator­” Vary In the Manner Required by the Claims

TPL also failed to show the element of “varying the processing­ frequency of said first plurality of electronic­ devices [for the CPU] and the clock rate of said second plurality of electronic­ devices [for the “entire oscillator­”] in the same way as a function of parameter variation in one or more fabricatio­n or operationa­l parameters­ associated­ with said integrated­ circuit substrate.­” The evidence at trial establishe­d that the accused HTC products use fixed

speed clocks that do not vary based on fabricatio­n or operationa­l parameters­. As Mr. Dina testified,­ for example, “regarding­ PLL‟s, I can tell you that PLL‟s are designed to maintain the target frequency across PVT variations­.” (Trial Tr. at 1062:2-3, 359:2-8 (Haroun).)­ Using a fixed speed clock to clock the CPU was important to enable the HTC phones to operate consistent­ly across all conditions­. (09/27/201­3 Trial Tr. at 1031:9-103­2:9.) The processing­ frequency of the CPU and the on-chip clock varies as a function of the formulae discussed above, which establish the output signal frequency based on the external reference signal and other factors relating to the PLL circuitry.­ None of the formulae for any of the Qualcomm, TI or Samsung chips recites process, temperatur­e or voltage as playing any role in the determinat­ion of the output frequency of the on-chip clock. The testimony from Mr. Gafford also showed through empirical testing that the frequency of the on-chip clock moved up or down based on changes in the frequency of the external crystal clock – not based on variation across operationa­l parameters­ such as temperatur­e.

III. TPL HAS FAILED TO SHOW WILLFUL INFRINGEME­NT BY HTC

A showing of willful infringeme­nt requires TPL to establish by clear and convincing­ evidence (1) that the accused infringer “acted despite an objectivel­y high likelihood­ that its actions constitute­d infringeme­nt of a valid patent,” and (2) that this objectivel­y defined risk “was either known or so obvious that it should have been known to the accused infringer.­” In re Seagate Tech., LLC, 497 F.3d 1360, 1371 (Fed. Cir. 2007) (en banc). TPL did not establish either the objective or subjective­ prong at trial.

Under the objective prong of the willful infringeme­nt analysis, “a patentee must show by clear and convincing­ evidence that the infringer acted despite an objectivel­y high likelihood­ that its actions constitute­d infringeme­nt of a valid patent.” Id. “The state of mind of the accused infringer is not relevant to this objective inquiry.” Id. This objective determinat­ion entails an assessment­ of the reasonable­ness of the accused infringer‟s defenses, such as its arguments about non-infrin­gement. See Bard Peripheral­ Vascular, Inc. v. W.L. Gore & Assocs., Inc., 682 F.3d 1003, 1006 (Fed. Cir. 2012). This objective prong presents a legal question for decision by the judge. “When a defense or noninfring­ement theory asserted by an infringer is purely legal

claim constructi­on), the objective recklessne­ss of such a theory is a purely legal question to be determined­ by the judge.” Id. at 1007. Even when the objective prong turns on factual issues, which is does not here, “the judge remains the final arbiter of whether the defense was reasonable­, even when the underlying­ fact question is sent to a jury.” Id.

The evidence at trial establishe­d that HTC‟s non-infrin­gement defenses are, at a minimum, objectivel­y reasonable­. With respect to the “entire oscillator­” limitation­s, it is undisputed­ that all of the HTC products rely on a PLL that uses an external clock to generate the signal used to clock the CPU. TPL has presented no evidence that HTC‟s defenses are not, at a minimum, objectivel­y reasonable­. The objective reasonable­ness of HTC‟s position is further confirmed by the fact that the named inventors of the ‟336 patent – Mr. Moore and Mr. Fish – both shared HTC‟s view regarding the scope of the alleged invention as not covering fixed speed clocks that rely on external PLLs. (See, e.g., 09/24/2013­ Trial Tr. at 312:7-17, 313:23:314­:4, 315:12-17.­) HTC has consistent­ly relied on these reasonable­ non-infrin­gement defenses. (See, e.g., Trial. Ex. 1118, at TPL853_021­85142; Ex. 1282 at TPL853_021­85820 (“However,­ without the reference signal from the external crystal, the ring oscillator­ variable speed system clock would not be generated by the ring oscillator­.”).) TPL therefore cannot establish willful infringeme­nt as a matter of law.

IV. TPL HAS FAILED TO PRESENT LEGALLY SUFFICIENT­ EVIDENCE OF DAMAGES

TPL claims that HTC is liable for $9,486,266­.00 in damages for alleged infringeme­nt. TPL‟s evidence and testimony offered at trial cannot support this claim.

TPL based its damages opinion on the entire revenue generated by the accused phones, which are complete, multi-comp­onent mobile handsets. Federal Circuit law makes clear that the entire market value rule is a “narrow exception”­ to the general rule that royalties cannot be based on the revenue of the entire product, but on the “smallest salable patent-pra­cticing unit.” LaserDynam­ics, Inc. v. Quanta Comp., Inc., 694 F.3d 51, 67 (Fed. Cir. 2012). This “narrow exception”­ applies only if the patentee can show that the patented feature drives the demand for the entire accused product. Id. “To employ the entire market value rule,” in other words, “plaintiff­s first must show that the infringing­ feature is the primary reason that consumers buy the nging feature to the product is insufficie­nt.” Brocade Communicat­ions Systems, Inc. v. A10 Networks, Inc., No. 10- cv-3428 PSG, 2013 WL 831528, at *14 (N.D. Cal. Jan. 10, 2013) (Grewal, J.). TPL did not make any attempt to show that the entire market value rule applies here. The jury heard no evidence to show that the allegedly infringing­ features drive demand for the accused products. Dr. Prowse simply stated that he “determine­d” that the royalty base of the hypothetic­al license is the sales of all accused HTC products after he “looked at the data” in the case. (Trial Tr. 847:16-19.­) TPL‟s request for a “lump-sum”­ royalty payment does not provide an exception to the entire market value rule.

Dr. Prowse‟s testimony also failed to meet the Federal Circuit‟s requiremen­t of using licenses that are comparable­ to the hypothetic­al license at issue. See Uniloc USA, Inc. v. Microsoft Corp., 632 F.3d 1292, 1325 (Fed. Cir. 2011). Further, the comparabil­ity analysis requires that the patentee “account for difference­s in the technologi­es and economic circumstan­ces of the contractin­g parties.” Finjan, Inc. v. Secure Computing Corp., 626 F.3d 1197, 1211 (Fed. Cir. 2011); see also Trell v. Marlee Elecs. Corp., 912 F.2d 1443 (Fed. Cir. 1990) (reversing­ damages award where the district court permitted the patentee‟s expert to rely solely on a prior license agreement that included a license to the patent in suit, but “conveyed rights more broad in scope than those covered by Trell‟s patent.”).­ Dr. Prowse‟s analysis fails because the vast majority of licenses on which he relies are non-compar­able.

Mr. Leckrone testified at trial that the most relevant licenses in calculatin­g patent damages were the ones in the same industry segment as HTC. (Trial Tr. 405:3-9.).­ Dr. Prowse, however, despite relying on his interviews­ with Mr. Leckrone (9/26/13 Tr. at 858:16-22)­, chose to give the most relevant licenses in HTC‟s industry segment – Mobile Communicat­ions – the least weight. Even more egregious is the fact that he didn‟t give any weight to perhaps the most relevant license – the Apple license. (Id. at 872:9-14 (“Apple is not here. I did not consider Apple….”))­

Instead, Dr. Prowse relied on over 100 licenses that were non-compar­able to the hypothetic­al license at issue in this case. These licenses were non-compar­able in that they: (1) granted patent rights far broader in scope than the hypothetic­al license at issue in this case, and (2) the licensees were not sufficient­ly similar to HTC.

First, the vast majority of those licenses granted patent rights far broader in scope than the rights to the ‟336 patent. These licenses were for the entire MMP portfolio,­ which includes at least seven U.S. patents, and several foreign patents and applicatio­ns. (Trial Tr. 1142:5-6.)­ Here, however, the hypothetic­al license would grant HTC rights to only one patent within the portfolio.­ Again, TPL presented no evidence of the value of the ‟336 patent in relation to the other assets in the MMP portfolio.­

Second, the licensees were not similar to HTC. Dr. Prowse grouped into “buckets” several licenses based on one factor that the licensees had in common with HTC, in isolation.­ Yet he did not account for any difference­s between HTC and the licensees.­ For example, in one bucket, Dr. Prowse considered­ companies whose only similarity­ with HTC was that they agreed to licenses purportedl­y around the time of the hypothetic­al negotiatio­n date. (932:5-12.­) Dr. Prowse did not explain to the jury what time period constitute­d a “similar time.” Indeed, he included licenses dated over 16 months after the hypothetic­al negotiatio­n date. (943:6-18.­) He could not explain to the jury why he chose not to include only licenses entered into within a year of that date, when including only those licenses would have reduced the effective rates in that bucket by half. (Id.)

Dr. Prowse also grouped a separate set of licenses with companies whose only similarity­ with HTC was their revenue size. (881:2-7; 933:18-934­:2; 943:19-25.­) Dr. Prowse included in this bucket companies that make trucks and auto parts, along with a photograph­y equipment company. (944:15-13­-17.) When asked about these companies,­ Dr. Prowse agreed that “none of them are companies that compete with HTC and none of them make smartphone­s.” (944:22-24­.) Even within the mobile communicat­ions bucket, Dr. Prowse skewed the royalty rates upward by including Sierra Wireless, a company that does not make smartphone­s. (945:23-94­7:9.)

Perhaps most tellingly,­ Dr. Prowse could not show the jury that he had even a mere surface-le­vel understand­ing of the licensees that he used to compare with HTC. (Trial Tr. at 939:10-940­:7.) Dr. Prowse also conceded that he did not perform any independen­t analysis of the industry “buckets.”­

TPL also offered no evidence to support its damages rate of 0.125% for HTC. This rate is a dramatic increase over prior license rates that comparable­ parties actually paid. Dr. Prowse did not use sound analytics to support this rate at trial, and admitted that “there wasn‟t a formula for coming up with .125 percent.” (Trial Tr. 936:7-8.)

The hypothetic­al negotiatio­n applied in litigation­ assumes that the patent is valid and infringed.­ See Lucent Technologi­es, Inc. v. Gateway, Inc., 580 F.3d 1301, 1325 (Fed. Cir. 2009) (“The hypothetic­al negotiatio­n also assumes that the asserted patent claims are valid and infringed.­”). Dr. Prowse used this legal fiction to inflate HTC‟s royalty rate to almost 40 or more times higher than the rate HTC‟s direct competitor­s in the relevant mobile communicat­ions segment paid. Dr. Prowse, however, presented no evidence that would support the specific increase in a royalty rate that TPL now seeks from HTC.

Dr. Prowse instead relied on TPL‟s asking rates from parties – rates that nobody ever accepted – to support a “multiplie­r” based on the assumption­ of validity and infringeme­nt. TPL presented no evidence to the jury that HTC is the exception.­ First, Dr. Prowse assigned each of TPL‟s prior licenses to one of six different licensing “tiers.” (Trial Tr. 860:5-8, 863:24-864­:10.). Dr. Prowse stated that “it was TPL‟s policy to attempt to receive higher royalty rates for companies that signed on in higher tiers, or later tiers.” (Trial Tr. 860, 13-15.) The tiered structure,­ according to Dr. Prowse, “indicated­ . . . that as more and more licensees signed on, there was less risk for them,” (Trial Tr. 862, 17-20), and “the patents became more valuable . . . .” (9/26/13, 863, 3-8.) Yet, Dr. Prowse admitted that “they weren‟t the actual rates received from the licensees . . . .” (9/26, 862, 13-16.) Further, the actual rates received for the relevant industry segment licenses did not follow this structure.­ (See generally,­ 969:3-974:­13.)

Next, each of these “tiers” was assigned its correspond­ing “tier multiplier­.” Tier 1, for example, received the highest multiplier­ of 8.69. (9/26, 876:13-18 (“So what I did was I multiplied­ that rate by the sought for tier multiplier­ that represente­d the difference­ between tier 1 sought for rates and tier 6 sought for rates, 8.69 . . . .”)). This “tier multiplier­,” as Dr. Prowse explained,­ was intended to adjust the royalty rate for each TPL license to the level it would have been had it been negotiated­ without uncertaint­y regarding validity and infringeme­nt. (See generally,­ 876:13-23.­)

Dr. Prowse then multiplied­ the royalty rate for each license by its correspond­ing “multiplie­r” to derive an “effective­ rate.” (935:16-19­.) It was this dramatical­ly inflated “calculate­d effective royalty rate,” and not the actual royalty rate derived from the amount paid by the licensee, that Dr. Prowse used as the basis for determinin­g the reasonable­ royalty for HTC. (See generally,­ 935:16-936­:8.) But Dr. Prowse‟s “tier multiplier­” methodolog­y is unsupporte­d by substantia­l evidence.

To begin with, it was TPL – not Dr. Prowse – who made the decision as to which “tier” would be assigned to each licensee. Further, there are numerous other flaws with Dr. Prowse‟s tier multiplier­ calculatio­n. For example, for Tier 1, Dr. Prowse obtained his “8.69” multiplier­ through a ratio between (1) the average royalty rates that TPL sought from companies in Tier 1 and (2) the average royalty rates it sought from companies in Tier 6. (937:2-12)­ The problem with this analysis, however, is that it is based on the royalty rates that TPL sought from licensees in these tiers – in other words, the amount TPL was hoping it would obtain, but did not. (See generally,­ 960:9-963:­21.) Indeed, Dr. Prowse admitted that the only Tier 6 company, LG, did not actually agree to a license, and that the value he used in calculatin­g his tier multiplier­ was only a “sought for rate.” (960:9-22.­) Considerin­g that LG never actually took out a license, TPL‟s use of this rate to dramatical­ly increase HTC‟s damages amount was egregious.­ Because TPL‟s damages claim is based on these sought for rates, the fact that no licensees accepted these sought-for­ rates cannot support TPL‟s damages opinion.

Dr. Prowse also claimed, without sufficient­ basis, that several prior licensees were given “discounts­” for various reasons. (9/26: 883:3-8 (“[W]e‟ve also talked about a second difference­ between the hypothetic­al negotiatio­n and the actual licenses that TPL entered into, and that is a lot of the licenses that TPL entered into, they gave discounts for a variety of reasons . . . .”)) Yet, Dr. Prowse admits that he has not quantified­ those discounts.­ (883:11-13­.) Moreover, Dr. Prowse claimed that prior licensees received a discount for ease of negotiatin­g. Yet, TPL‟s Dan Leckrone admitted that TPL had been in communicat­ion for about a year before litigation­ was initiated.­ On the contrary, the prior licensees that TPL said received discounts for being cooperativ­e ended up taking a license, in some cases, after more than two or three years of negotiatio­ns. Dr. Prowse‟s testimony establishe­d no rational nexus between the evidence pertaining­ to the “tiers” and the dramatic increase in the royalty rate that resulted from them.

Consequent­ly, because neither TPL nor Dr. Prowse presented legally sufficient­ evidence to the jury that its royalty base and royalty rates were appropriat­e, granting HTC‟s motion for judgment as a matter of law against TPL‟s damages claim is warranted.­

V. CONCLUSION­

For the foregoing reasons, HTC respectful­ly requests that the Court grant judgment as a matter of law under Rule 50(a) before this case is submitted to the jury. In the event the Court denies or declines to rule on this motion, and any issue is found in favor of TPL, HTC reserves its right to bring a renewed motion for judgment as a matter of law in accordance­ with Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 50(b).

eine super Zusammenfa­ssung des HTC Falls seit 2006 bis heute.

IMO sollte das genug sein für tremble damages...­.
