    Patent investigations brought under International Trade Commission (ITC) have seen an upward trend in recent years. Consequently, as several types of products and components are imported in the U.S., an increase in patent litigation is also expected – a scenario that may put a large number of U.S. companies and their consumers at risk.
    Furthermore, despite having ITC Section 337 investigations on the lookout, companies still need to prepare for possible contingency plans especially that the current legal landscape is clouded with emerging trends and developments.

    In this LIVE Webcast, a seasoned panel of thought leaders and professionals brought together by The Knowledge Group will provide the audience with an in-depth analysis of the recent ITC section 337 investigations and developments. Speakers will also present all important issues surrounding this topic including the emerging developments from the federal circuit.

    Key topics include:
    • An Overview of ITC Section 337 Investigation
    • Emerging Trends and Developments
    • Notable Court Rulings and Decisions
    • Potential Risks and Issues
    • Practical Tips and Strategies
    • Outlook
