On May 8, 2018, the US International Trade Commission (ITC) completed the process that began in 2015 to change the rules governing its practice and procedures with respect to Section 337 investigations – the investigations that the ITC conducts under 19 U.S.C. § 1337 based on private party complaints against imported articles that allegedly violate US intellectual property rights. The amended rules were published in the Federal Register and will go into effect for investigations initiated after June 7, 2018. A post by our sister publication, Global IP & Technology Blog, provides additional details on the amendments and implications.
