Eppenauer to Present IPO Webinar on Digital Transmissions Under Section 337

Shook, Hardy & Bacon Seattle Managing Partner Bart Eppenauer will co-present an Intellectual Property Owners Association (IPO) Webinar on May 8, 2014, about the U.S. International Trade Commission's (ITC's) recent ruling that it has jurisdiction to prevent the transmission into the United States of electronic files that infringe patents. Titled "Are Digital Transmissions an 'Article' Under Section 337? Looking Ahead to the Federal Circuit," the Webinar will discuss a patent infringement battle involving rival teeth-straightening systems that "touches on issues that have been addressed in several earlier appellate decisions, such as the reach of U.S. law to other countries (Microsoft v. AT&T), the IP status of digital signals (In Re Nuijten), and the scope of the ITC (Kyocera, Tian Rui and Suprema)." To register for the Webinar, please click here.
