The International Trade Commission (“ITC”) offers powerful remedies not available in traditional courts. The ITC’s chief remedy, an exclusion order, allows IP holders to block infringing products from entering the United States. With its expedited schedules and exclusionary power, the ITC can resolve issues quickly and forcefully. And unlike district courts, the ITC can look across international borders and take action based on overseas activity. An exclusion order can be based on infringement of U.S. patents, trademarks, copyrights, and a variety of other intellectual property rights.
