ITC Standards for Satisfying the Domestic Industry Requirement

Presented by

Maureen Browne, Ashley Miller, Steven Haines

About this talk

This webinar focuses on the type of complainants that qualify to use Section 337. As the Supreme Court and the Federal Circuit have rendered decisions that make the district courts less attractive for patent litigation by non-practicing entities, their attention has turned to the ITC. There are several cases before the Commission right now that have raised very important questions regarding where the Commission should draw the line for satisfying the so-called Domestic Industry requirement. Panelists will provide an overview of Commission law on this topic, summarize the recent cases and discuss the policy and strategic implications for litigants. Panelists: Maureen Browne and Ashley Miller, Covington & Burling and Steven Haines, Legal Director, Seagate Technology

‘What keeps in-house counsel awake at night?’ is one way to summarise our editorial focus. We aim to track the strategies of in-house IP counsel within companies, big and small, by speaking directly to them about the day-to-day issues they face. Law firms need practical information that they can apply when advising their clients, and companies find value in benchmarking their strategies with those of their peers. This is why we have adopted this approach in our subscription-based service. Our content is not reactionary or news-focused, but informed and actionable. In this pursuit of in-house intelligence, we also publish several surveys each year that include exclusive data focusing on specific industry issues. These polls allow us to provide an accurate snapshot of how in-house counsel perceive and act on a given issue. Our other core objective is interviewing senior judges, whose insight is valuable for many IP stakeholders. We find that the judiciary are vital for giving counsel, private and in-house, highly useful information for when they are locked in litigation. We continue to speak regularly with IP offices too. Regardless of its specific intent, our coverage is global and encompasses (but is not limited to) the following areas: Copyright; Data; Designs; Patents; Trademarks; and Trade secrets
