Additional Information

A considerable part of Dr. Goedde’s practice involves intellectual property issues including patent, trademark, copyright, trade secret and unfair competition matters as well as business valuations. His background in engineering and economics combined with his work experience in profit planning, budgeting, product marketing and acquisitions analysis has enabled him to assist clients in a wide range of intellectual property litigation. Dr. Goedde can also draw upon his experience as a patent examiner at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. His testimony experience in patent infringement matters includes economic analysis of the Panduit factors, applying Georgia Pacific factors to evaluate reasonable royalty; and, developing RAND royalty rates considering such issues as scope of the royalty base, lump sum and running royalties, royalty stacking, license comparability, university licensing agreements, exclusive licensing, and apportionment of profits to non-infringing components. Dr. Goedde has consulted and testified on numerous high technology matters including semiconductors, wired and wireless media, internet media delivery systems, cell phone component manufacture, telecommunications, software and biotechnology. His analysis and testimony have involved accelerated product life cycles, first-mover advantages, economics of startup and development stage companies, market power, product development costs, and distribution economics.
