The US ITC has continued to grow in popularity as a first point of call for international IP disputes, because of its speed and the range of remedies available. WIPR takes a look at some of its headline activities.

The smartphone wars

HTC, Samsung, Apple, Sony Ericsson, Motorola, Microsoft, RIMs, Nokia, Interdigital, Huawei, Google and others have all had roles in ITC cases in the past year, covering smartphones, other mobile devices and screen technology.
