Director Uma N. Everett will be a panelist at SABA-DC Presents: IP and Trade Across Borders - Investigations Before the ITC on September 4, 2019 in Washington, DC.
The International Trade Commission (“ITC”) is a powerful and popular venue to enforce intellectual property rights and curtail unfair trade practices, with the primary remedy being exclusion of infringing products from the U.S. market. The ITC is especially relevant today, as the current administration seeks to protect domestic industries from foreign competition. SABA-DC invites you to a panel discussion and has assembled an experienced panel to discuss the lure and lore of the ITC, as well as its future. We hope to provide (i) a brief introduction to ITC practice and the key ITC and Federal Circuit decisions affecting it; (ii) a comparison of ITC litigation with district court litigation and PTAB proceedings; and (iii) a discussion of how protectionist policies and trade disputes may affect ITC practice.
