Another Big Year For ITC: Top 12 Section 337 Highlights

December 17, 2014, Law360

Covington's Shara Aranoff authored this article on the top ITC cases for the year:

"This has been another eventful year for litigation before the U.S. International Trade Commission under Section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930. While the ITC refined the domestic industry standard in cases involving nonpracticing entities, newly introduced legislation might ultimately result in more changes. The Federal Circuit agreed to reconsider its decision narrowing Section 337’s applicability to induced infringement, as the ITC held on to its jurisdiction over standard-essential patents and confirmed its ability to reach digital imports. Meanwhile, both the ITC and Customs and Border Protection took steps toward better exclusion order enforcement, even as the ITC stayed one of its own exclusion orders pending appeal for the first time."
