  • Gather best practices on how to appropriately work within the timeline of an ITC proceeding alongside a concurrent Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) action in order to optimize the outcome of your claim
  • Delve into the evolution of the two forums, which traditionally worked in parallel but now intersect at an increasing pace
  • Analyze the intersection of Section 337 and Section AIA (America Invents Act) in ITC proceedings
  • Examine ALJs’ consideration of PTAB in recent cases, including their willingness to stay cases or defer to the PTAB when adjudicating a patent’s validity
  • Explore how ongoing consideration of particular patents at PTAB impacts the enforcement of remedial orders already issued by the ITC
  • Learn how the ITC has been responding to PTAB invalidity rulings after having previously granted injunctive relief to claimants in 337 cases
