Summary

On August 23, 1988, President Reagan signed the Omnibus Trade and Competitiveness Act of 1988 (HR 4848) into law. That Act made certain significant changes in both substantive U.S. patent law, and the law and practice before the United States International Trade Commission (USITC) under 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930 as amended (19 U.S. Code 1337). The pre-August 23, 1988, law and procedure, and the significant changes therein, as a result of the 1988 Act, are discussed.
