In this webinar, an attorney with abundant experience and knowledge will address the key features of United States patent litigation at the International Trade Commission (ITC) and their impact on Japanese corporations doing business in the United States.
We start by discussing the increased use of the ITC as a forum for patent litigation. We follow this discussion by examining the key and unique features of litigation at the ITC, such as jurisdiction, discovery, and trial. We then turn our attention to the use of this forum against foreign companies, and specifically Japanese companies. Relatedly, we will present specific impactful ways Japanese Corporations can use this form, both offensively and defensively. Finally, we will update our audience on recent developments in U.S. law concerning the ITC proceedings, such as the interplay with Patent Office proceedings, use of the pilot program, updates on domestic industry, and the latest on public interest. This webinar will then conclude with an overview of key takeaways for Japanese corporations.
