The Los Angeles Intellectual Property Law Association Dinner Event

Event Detail
Pat Flinn, Michael Newton, Ben Pleune, and Jamie Underwood served as panelists at this dinner event coordinated by The Los Angeles Intellectual Property Law Association. The panel discussed, “Beyond the Headlines of Section 337 at the ITC: What It Is, Why It Is So Popular, and How It Can Inform Your Global IP Portfolio Strategies”. Investigations under Section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended, (19 U.S.C. § 1337) may have their roots in an unassuming trade statute, but such matters have sky-rocketed to great prominence as one of the most effective means of protecting U.S. intellectual property rights. The past two years have shattered records for the number of Section 337 complaints filed at the U.S. International Trade Commission, resulting in the ITC handling roughly 15% of U.S. patent actions. The effects of ITC decisions are reported regularly in business publications spanning from The Economist to The Wall Street Journal, and all signs point to a continued level of heightened activity, making knowledge about Section 337 a requirement for any IP advisor. The panelists went behind the headlines to offer practical insight on what Section 337 investigations really entail, the advantages the ITC has to offer that make Section 337 so popular, and how you can use Section 337 to maximize your global IP portfolio.
