David A. Boag focuses on multi-defendant patent litigation and proceedings before the U.S. International Trade Commission.
He has experience handling patent litigation involving image compression, video compression, hard disk spindle motors and plastics. He prepares non-infringement and invalidity opinions for clients on a wide range of subject matter that includes compression technology, semiconductors, computer architecture, motors, toys, household goods and children’s products. Mr. Boag, who began his career as a software developer, is particularly involved in cases involving digital technology, computer systems and software. He represents a major Internet retailer in prosecuting and enforcing dozens of patents underlying its ecommerce and IT platforms, and defending litigation over infringement.
In the fast-paced ITC, he has represented numerous clients seeking or defending claims of infringement and exclusion orders. For example, he recently defended a non-U.S. manufacturer of picture-within-picture technology against claims of patent infringement, and was successful in enabling the continued import of the product.
He manages the global patent strategy of a Hong Kong-based toy manufacturer that distributes in Europe, Asia and the United States. His work includes a strategic international prosecution and enforcement program to protect the company’s multi-million dollar revenue stream.
