Oracle America, Inc. v. Google Inc.
ORDER REGARDING HEARING ON MARCH 7 re #756 Order. Signed by Judge Alsup on March 5, 2012.. (whalc1, COURT STAFF) (Filed on 3/5/2012)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
HEARING ON MARCH 7
For the Northern District of California
United States District Court
No. C 10-03561 WHA
ORACLE AMERICA, INC.,
For the hearing on Wednesday, the Court would like to learn the following. How did
Dr. Ian Cockburn choose which studies to rely on for the patent-value curves? Do studies not
chosen, such as those listed in Harhoff et al., have less skewed curves? Please bring copies of all
references and studies with patent-value curves, not just the three selected by Dr. Cockburn.
Based on the three studies cited, what is the confidence interval for the proposition that the top
0.5% of patents are worth 32.7% of the value (also, that the top 4% of patents are worth 10.2%)?
What would be the value of the ’104, ’205, and ’720 patents if they ranked as the bottom three of
the “top” 22 patents? For all statistical analysis, including the conjoint analysis, the Court is
interested in the confidence intervals of the results. Under the group and value approach, what is
the separate value of each patent in suit?
Both sides shall exchange whatever illustrative materials they plan to use by 5:00 P.M. ON
TUESDAY. Please come prepared to hand up precise evidence to back up assertions.
Dated: March 5, 2012.
