Process Patent Amendments Act of 1988, Pub. L. No. 100-418, 102 Stat. 1567, tit. IX, §9007 (Aug. 23, 1988).

Overview Edit

The Act enables U.S. process patent holders to block the import of foreign products produced by methods infringing their patents as well as to hold domestic sellers or users of a product made by a patented process liable for infringement.

It provides that the Secretary of Commerce is to make annual reports to Congress covering each of the successive five 1-year periods beginning 6 months after Aug. 23, 1988, on the effect of the amendments on those domestic industries that submit complaints to the Department of Commerce alleging that their legitimate sources of supply have been adversely affected by the amendments.
