Section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930 prohibits unfair methods of competition and practices in import trade, particularly the importation or sale of infringing goods in the United States. The U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC) Section 337 investigations involve high stakes for both patent holders and parties accused of importing infringing products. The complex and challenging ITC investigations demands for a multi-disciplined approach that involves knowledge of intellectual property litigation and international trade and policy. It is important for businesses and their counsel to understand the unique procedural framework of the ITC Section 337 investigations.
The Knowledge Group has assembled a panel of key thought leaders and practitioners to discuss ITC Section 337 investigations and offer a thorough guidance to navigate the complexities of Section 337 proceedings.
In a two-hour live webcast, the speakers will discuss:
• Overview of Section 337
• ITC Section 337 Investigations Framework
• Asserting Section 337 Claims
• Issues and Challenges in a Section 337 Investigation
• Recent Filing Trends at the ITC
