The decision to file a Section 337 Complaint is never an easy one. The changing legal landscape with regard to the ITC’s standing and jurisdictional requirements, as well as the impact of the America Invents Act, present new complexities to the analysis. This panel will discuss significant factors that should be considered, including arguments for and against filing a Section 337 Complaint, including:

  • Business goals and potential remedies;
  • Type of claim (patent, trade secret, or other unfair act);
  • Number and types of infringers; and
  • Timing/Cost.
