The International Trade Commission (ITC) has become a popular venue for patent disputes, offering a lower-cost and expedited alternative to traditional patent litigation in the federal courts. Patent assertion entities, aided by third-party litigation funders, increasingly see the ITC as the most effective option for filing patent disputes. Yet, these decisions can have a significant impact on consumers and American companies.

Join us for an engaging discussion on patent abuse, ITC reform and the Advancing America’s Interests Act.

The panel is from 4pm – 5:30pm with a reception to follow.
