OxFirst Webinar on the Non-Infringing Alternatives in Canadian Patent Law

On Thursday, January 27, I’ll be presenting a free webinar, hosted by OxFirst, titled The Non-Infringing Alternative in Monetary Remedies in Canadian Patent Law. The webinar will run from 15:00-16:00 GMT (10:00-11:00 Eastern):

This webinar addresses the role of the “non-infringing alternative” in assessing damages and an accounting of profits in Canadian patent cases. This doctrine permits an infringer to argue that it would have been able to compete with the patentee as well, or almost as well, by using an non-infringing alternative, so that damages (or the profit to be disgorged) may be reduced, in some cases to zero. The webinar will show how the the doctrine is based in traditional principles of “but for” causation; illustrate its application in some of the leading case; discuss some of the main objections; and discuss some of the fine points that have been emerged from the Canadian caselaw.

You can join the webinar here.
