On February 20, 2014, the White House issued a Press Release announcing “progress on a series of initiatives designed to combat patent trolls and further strengthen our patent system and foster innovation” that the Administration had Announced in June 2014.  Strengthening ITC exclusion orders is among the areas on which the Administration has been working to implement executive actions, according to the release, which states that the Office of the U.S. Intellectual Property Enforcement Coordinator launched an interagency review and “will, in the coming months, deliver its recommendations on refining” the process for making the enforcement of ITC exclusion orders “more transparent, effective, and efficient.”
