World Congress 11th Annual Corporate IP Counsel Forum


After the Supreme Court's decision in TC Heartland, many are considering the best choice when it comes to venue for potential litigation. This presentation will uncover the often overlooked path through the ITC, the similarities and differences in the litigation process, and when these differences can be used for a strategic advantage.

Fish principal and ITC specialist, Rich Sterba, will discuss the increasing industry impact of the TC Heartland decision and other recent cases that provide additional guidance into the new rules of venue. Rich will also examine trends in district court filings to further refine filing strategies, and review the basic steps of an ITC Section 337 investigation, as well as the procedural ways it differs from typical district court infringement litigation.
