Help for Counsel Practicing before the ITC: § 337 Patent Investigation Management Guide

Help for Counsel Practicing before the ITC: § 337 Patent Investigation Management Guide

Many patent owners have gravitated toward the U.S. International Trade Commission's (ITC) policing of unfair trade practices under Section 337 of the Trade Act as District Courts have become bogged down with patent infringement actions, which can take 3 to 5 years to reach the trial stage. To help corporate counsel and outside counsel who practice before the ITC, LexisNexis has released the Section 337 Patent Investigation Management Guide [searchable version available to lexis.com subscribers].

Section 337 Patent Investigation Management Guide is a comprehensive, user-friendly, and practical manual for experienced ITC professionals as well as new entrants to this important branch of patent enforcement. Organized around the contours of ITC investigations, this treatise provides invaluable insight into the nuances of ITC procedures. Section 337 Patent Investigation Management Guide also serves as a critical resource for companies seeking to evaluate their options, enforcement strategies, and defense tools, as well as for the full range of patent professionals - - many of whom have little experience with the ITC process.
