Using the ITC as a Trademark Enforcement Tool

Typically used as a forum for patent infringement suits, the International Trade Commission (ITC) is becoming a more attractive venue for trademark owners seeking to stop the importation of counterfeits and other infringing goods into the United States. This discussion will focus on best practices and strategies for trademark owners who are considering using the ITC to enforce their rights and police their brands, as well as accused infringers who may find themselves involved in this fast-paced forum. We will cover:

  • Initiating and responding to investigations
  • Domestic industry and injury requirements in the trademark context
  • Remedies available for trademark infringement
