The Knowledge Group – Intellectual Property Infringement of Medical Devices: Litigation Trends and Practices of the US ITC in 2015

January 1, 1900

Alexander J. Hadjis will speak at this event.

Over the last 10 years, the number of patent infringement disputes filed with the U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC) has increased dramatically. Cases at the ITC usually involve tele-communication devices, but also include a wide range of medical devices. The cases involving medical devices suggest that manufacturers and importers should monitor and address any issues that place them at risk of compliance failure and litigation relating to Section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930. The Act allows U.S. intellectual property owners to seek exclusion orders barring the importation of infringing devices into the United States.
