Design-Arounds: Strategy at the ITC and District Courts
Thursday, April 30, at 2:00pm – 3:00pm ET
Designing around an infringed patent creates many strategic challenges for both plaintiffs and defendants. For example, in district court litigation, plaintiffs can either broadly seek discovery related to potential redesigns (and risk a finding of noninfringement), or sit back and attempt to preclude such evidence. By contrast, defendants must choose between introducing potential design-arounds early in discovery and risking an adverse adjudication, or waiting until later during litigation and risking preclusion or other unwanted consequences. Similarly, in ITC proceedings, parties must consider whether to attempt to force the ITC to adjudicate potential design-arounds during the investigation or to wait until after any exclusion order issues. Then the fight over the scope of the exclusion would move to Customs and Border Protection or may require a return to the ITC to seek an advisory opinion or enforcement order.
Our panel will review the case law regarding redesign and discuss strategy issues relating to timing, discovery, claim construction, and procedures. In addition, an official of the ITC will discuss a new pilot program, announced this winter, that will test the use of expedited procedures to evaluate and rule on new and redesigned products in modification and advisory proceedings.
