Here's some fresh new about the ongoing liquid cooling litigation from Asetek against Cooler Master. Late last year, Asetek won the case against CMI USA (Cooler Master USA) and was awarded damages based on a 14.5 percent royalty rate.

Cooler Master responded by requesting a new trial, but not only did the court yesterday deny this demand they also awarded Asetek enhanced damages based on a 25.375% royalty rate on Cooler Master USA's revenue for sales of infringing products sold from January 1, 2015.
In late 2014, Asetek won a patent infringement case against CMI USA, Inc. (“CMI”) at the United States District Court for the Northern District of California. The jury unanimously ruled in favor of Asetek, and awarded damages based on a 14.5% royalty rate. In a post trial motion, CMI demanded a judgement as a matter of law and a new trial.

The court yesterday denied CMI's demands, and instead substantially followed Asetek’s requests and issued a permanent injunction barring CMI and its parent Cooler Master from selling certain infringing products into the Unites States.

Also, the judge awarded Asetek enhanced damages i.e., a 25.375% royalty rate, on CMI’s revenues for sales of infringing products beginning January 1, 2015.

It should be noted that the matter is appealable by CMI.
