Comments:I am a patent attorney with 39 years of experience. The proposed process of apportionment of damages does not make sense. The process of consideration of the Georgia Pacific factors automatically apportions damages. To then further apportion, leaves the patent holder with his damages being apportioned twice. Accordingly, the proposed process of apportionment is illogical and unfair to the patent holder.
