Abstract

The United States International Trade Commission (“ITC”) investigates alleged trade violations of Section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended. Section 337 makes it illegal to import products that infringe a patent, so long as there is a domestic industry in products protected by the patent. As a trade statute, section 337 requires that the ITC consider the public interest in enforcing section 337. This chapter explores the role of the ITC when such infringed patents are standard essential patents (SEPs).
