In particular, the defendant argued that the standard of copyright damages mirrors that of patent law, i.e., that the plaintiff had to prove its copyrighted features drove consumer demand for the infringing product. But that overstated the standard, the court held. The plaintiff must only establish causation, i.e., that “but for” the infringement, the defendant wouldn’t have…

MDB’s billion dollar “prediction” really just picked up on Starboard’s earlier statements regarding their own expectations, acknowledging that Starboard could…
