Join us on Tuesday, July 9 for a discussion with patent attorney Kevin Flynn of BakerHostetler about IP-based import investigations at the U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC).
Actions under Section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930 have increased in popularity over the past decade, as the speed with which ITC investigations proceed and the remedies available through the forum make the ITC a unique venue. Mr. Flynn will present an overview of the ITC and Section 337, the progression of Section 337 investigations, strategies from both the IP-holder’s and accused infringer’s perspective, and the reasons for litigating at the ITC rather than in district court.
About the Speaker:
Mr. Flynn has extensive experience and a deep knowledge of IP law, with a practice encompassing patent and trademark prosecution, as well as patent litigation before federal district courts, the Patent Trial and Appeal Board, and the ITC. He has experience prosecuting and litigating a wide range of technologies, from software to bioinformatics and computer forensic devices.
