The U.S. Supreme Court recently held that a patent owner may recover lost foreign profits for infringement under 35 U.S.C. §271(f)(2). WesternGeco LLC v. ION Geophysical Corp., No. 16-1011, 138 S. Ct. 2129 (June 22, 2018). This holding rejects the Federal Circuit’s categorical exclusion of lost profits damages for foreign sales, and expands the potential for increased damages from domestic competitors operating in foreign markets.
