In reference to the patent: US7441367

What royalties would be due for an implementation of this patent (Or is the intent to prevent said invention from being implemented)?

    I'm afraid we can't answer such a question: that is purely a matter for the patent owner to decide. – Maca May 7 '17 at 1:16

Royalty payments, to my understanding, are negotiated and memorialized in a contract between the parties, often without one party bringing a lawsuit. Alternately if one wanted to enforce his or her patent retrospective royalties may either be a) agreed to in a settlement of a judicial proceeding or b) adjudicated as damages by a judge.

Just as Maca said above, the decision on whether to license out a patent (e.g., gain royalties) or enforce the patent via the judicial system is the patent owner's.
