Section 337 Investigations on the Rise

Investigations by the U.S. International Trade Commission under §337 of the Tariff Act of 1930, (19 U.S.C. 1337) offer redress against infringing imports that the federal courts cannot match due to the ITC's technical capabilities, the almost limitless discovery available, the favorable nationwide relief often obtained, and the fast-pace schedule at which the agency works. "As a result," writes Lyle Vander Schaaf in a January 3, 2005 article for (subscription required), "the ITC is on track to institute more §337 cases this year than ever before, with 28 investigations filed or instituted in the first 10 months of 2004 alone -- well above previous years' annual average of roughly 19 investigations."
