After the successful release of our IPR and Patent reports, several companies and law firms asked about a similar report for ITC as some companies struggle to identify the right firm to work with and also some law firms are looking for a more data-backed approach to market their ITC practice.
We are planning to release our 1st ITC Intelligence Report in December of 2019. To improve the quality of the report, this time, we have decided to run a survey and get some feedback from the stakeholders on how to distribute the points between all parties. 
 
The questions are somewhat technical and is designed for practicing ITC attorneys. If you are involved in ITC Section 337, we appreciate if you spend a few minutes and complete this short survey:

Question Title

* 1. Please provide your work email address

Question Title

* 2. Would you consider a consent agreement more a win for the Complainant, or for the Respondent, or an equal win for both?

Question Title

* 3. Would you consider a settlement in the context of a 337 violation ID more a win for the Complainant, or for the Respondent, or equal win for both?

Question Title

* 4. We are currently considering scoring Withdrawn complaints as follows:

(A) 100% for the Respondent if the case is Withdrawn and there are no agreements, written or oral, express or implied between [Complainants and Respondents] concerning the subject matter of the Investigation...

(B) 50/50 for Respondent/Complainant if Withdrawn with mention of a settlement

Q: Are there any other common reasons for which a case might plausibly be withdrawn under scenario (A) above, that might also warrant split scoring? If so, what are those other reasons for Withdrawals, and what scoring would you recommend for each?

Question Title

* 5. Are Defaults (or failure to respond) on ITC cases ever part of a viable legal strategy involving an attorney, or are Defaults always a decision or action made solely by the Respondent company (without legal representation)? (For the purposes of this question, we will assume long-standing and uncorrected Defaults are intentional actions.)

Question Title

* 6. Do you have any additional feedback or comments?
