Under Section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930, the U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC) covers IP cases related to imported goods. ITC litigation presents unique challenges to the parties in the lawsuit. It involves litigating technologically complicated lawsuits in a short period of time. Litigating Section 337 cases should not be like litigating a jury case since these are not district court cases.
To ensure effective representation, litigators must be well-versed with the patent prosecution process and must have comprehensive technical or scientific background in order to evaluate and present arguments on the main issues driving the case. Legal strategies should also be developed and executed to maximize opportunities while minimizing disruption to clients’ business.
The Knowledge Group has assembled a panel of key thought leaders and practitioners to discuss ITC Section 337 litigation and to offer tips and strategies that will help litigators overcome the complexities of Section 337 proceedings. Speakers will also provide an in-depth discussion of key Section 337 litigation developments.
Key topics include:
• Overview of Section 337
• ITC Section 337 Investigations Framework
• Notable Cases
• Litigation Challenges
• Litigation Tips and Strategies
• Latest Litigation Trends and Developments
