Access from EThOS:
This thesis is concerned with the proper quantum of compensatory damages which should be awarded to the patent holder whose patent has been infringed to recover his losses caused by patent infringement. The balance between the reward to the patent holder and the benefits which society can receive from the patented invention is especially taken into consideration. The contribution of the patented invention will be proposed as a main criterion in the maintenance of this balance, and several formulas which will be used to rank the contribution of a certain invention are the main core of this thesis.
