Counsel for Garmin, the respondents in this case, retained The Brattle Group to evaluate the economic prong of the domestic industry requirement. Brattle Group Principal Dr. Pallavi Seth prepared a rebuttal report evaluating the complainant Pioneer’s investment in exploiting the asserted patents. In this landmark decision, the ITC determined that Pioneer’s US licensing activities were insufficient to establish domestic industry and terminated the investigation with a finding of no violation by Garmin.
