IP: Determining if Your Business Can Handle an ITC Investigation

Before committing to the ITC, be prepared for the intensity of the process and the work and expense necessary to enforce the order if you prevail.

April 3, 2012

Part One of this series discussed why the International Trade Commission (ITC) has become an increasingly popular forum for patent litigation and addressed two basic technical requirements that must be met to institute an action there: the infringing product must be imported into the U.S and your company must have a domestic industry with respect to the patented technology. Part Two will help you consider whether your business can tolerate the demanding schedule of an ITC investigation and will discuss the challenge of enforcing an order if you prevail.
