This chapter surveys the empirical literature on patent remedies. Section 2 discusses the literature on injunctions, beginning with an overview of legal doctrine and economic debates over “property rules” versus “liability rules,” and concluding with a summary of empirical studies that examine the frequency and circumstances of injunction grants or the nature of injunctions’ content and scope. Section 3 discusses the literature on patent damages, beginning with an overview of the law and economics of damages before proceeding to a review of the empirical literature on the prevalence of different types of damages, damages amounts, and possible explanations for damages outcomes. Section 4 briefly discusses other remedies, including declaratory judgments, for which there appears to be little relevant empirical literature. The conclusion suggests possible avenues for future research
