Today’s new episode of In the Know: Warner’s Litigation Spotlight features Warner’s Intellectual Property Enforcement and Litigation Sub-Practice Group. Partner and co-chair of the group, Mike Azzi, addresses patent infringement actions and the International Trade Commission. Typically patent infringement disputes take place in federal court, but in recent years, patent owners have been taking advantage of the ITC’s proceedings that are more efficient and effective when seeking an exclusion or a cease and desist order. Mike outlines what the ITC is and why it can be useful to prohibit a patent infringement issue at the border before it enters the U.S. market. He weighs the pros and cons to help owners consider which method is right for their case.
