This article examines whether the jurisprudence of the enhanced damages provision found in 35 U.S.C. § 284 should be modified in light of recent Supreme Court decisions that have altered the jurisprudence of the attorney’s fees provision found in 35 U.S.C. § 285. The authors conclude that a revision is needed to the standard for determining whether to award enhanced damages under § 284 and that juries as opposed to judges should determine whether to grant such an award as well as the amount of the award.
