About Blaney Harper
Blaney Harper's practice focuses on strategic patent litigation representing electronics, software, and information technology companies in matters such as patent enforcement in United States District Courts and the International Trade Commission (ITC). Blaney also represents and counsels clients concerning patent portfolio development and patent prosecution and appeal, including Inter Partes Review, in the USPTO. Blaney co-chairs the Firm's ITC practice and is the IP Practice Coordinator for the Washington Office.
Blaney's experience covers a broad cross-section of technology, including semiconductor structures, microprocessor architecture, memory, application-specific integrated circuits, and related hardware and software for applications such as wireless communications, fiber-optic networks, distributed computing, digital image processing, computational linguistics, computer controlled radiology, computer peripherals, accelerometers, and other electronic sensors. Blaney's engineering experience gives him keen insight into many technology issues.
Blaney has been the lead lawyer concerning infringement allegations on multiple patents on behalf of Cree Inc. (concerning LEDs), Imagination Technologies (concerning Graphic Processors), Vizio (TVs), Nexteer (auto parts), Qualcomm (communication circuits), Freescale (packaged semiconductors), Eastman Kodak Company (digital cameras), Sercel I/O (MEMs accelerometers), Lucent (internet infrastructure), and others.
Blaney has been recognized in Intellectual Asset Management (IAM) 1000 (2014-2017) ("a man of action who really knows how to drive a matter towards the right outcome for his client.") and in Managing Intellectual Property "2015 USIP Stars."
With 74 new complaints filed in fiscal year 2018, the International Trade Commission (ITC) remains to be an attractive forum for intellectual property (IP) litigation. However, in recent years, Section 337 investigations on non-patent claims have also significantly increased. These non-statutory complaints include trade secret theft, antitrust, unfair competition, and false advertising claims. Complainants recognize the perceived effectiveness of Section 337 remedies which make the ITC a favorable venue for both statutory and non-statutory claims.
