More than five years and nearly 3,000 posts after we started this blog, the reasons for starting this effort are just as compelling today as they were in February 2009. Specifically, we are proud to have a loyal and still growing list of interested readers who turn to this blog every day for reliable up-to-date information on issues relating specifically to Section 337 investigations at the U.S. International Trade Commission ("ITC"). The demonstrated interest of our readers has made this the leading blog of its kind and we thank you greatly for your continued support.

Despite the popularity of Section 337 litigation, there are still very few resources in the public domain that provide at no cost the type of information we provide here on a daily basis. There is, of course, the ITC's useful website ( and a wealth of information that can be gathered by using the ITC's Electronic Document Information System ("EDIS"), but monitoring these sources for recent developments can be time-consuming.

The information we provide on this blog is designed to be easily-accessible and fact-based reporting of interesting developments about new and pending investigations, litigation trends, statistics, practical insights into the Administrative Law Judges, and commentary on important ITC decisions. We remain hopeful that this blog will help you become more knowledgeable about recent developments in pending Section 337 investigations at the ITC and that you will adopt it as an indispensable resource for quickly finding useful information relating to this unique area of law.

For those of you who have found this blog helpful, please tell your friends and colleagues about us and recommend that they subscribe to our daily email updates.

In the meantime, we continue to welcome your support and look forward to continuing to provide you with information and insight into the unique and exciting practice of Section 337 litigation at the ITC.
