Under this authority, the International Trade Commission (ITA) applies U.S. statutory and common law of unfair competition to the importation of products into the United States and their sale. Section 337 prohibits unfair competition and unfair importing practices and sales of products in the U.S., when these threaten to: (1) destroy or substantially injure a domestic industry, (2) prevent the establishment of such an industry, or (3) restrain or monopolize U.S. trade and commerce. Section 337 also prohibits infringement of U.S. patents, copyrights or registered trademarks.
