Stopping Traffick: Actions Before the U.S. International Trade Commission to Stop Unfair and Unethically-Sourced Competition
A HUB Talks Podcast
The U.S. International Trade Commission is charged with remedying unfair acts in the importation of products into the United States. While alleged unfair acts at issue before the Commission tend to take the form of intellectual property infringement, the Commission’s mandate is broader, and can be construed to include unfair acts in the form of the importation of articles manufactured using child and forced labor in contravention of customary international law. A complainant successfully proving such unfair acts is statutorily entitled to an order excluding such articles from further importation, engendering significant business and other benefits for such complainant.
