When even the ITC can't find your "domestic industry"

In its quest to assert jurisdiction over a larger and larger share of private patent disputes, the U.S. International Trade Commission has rendered the domestic industry requirement of Section 337 nearly meaningless. So, it's pretty impressive when a case comes along where the quantity of domestic investment is just so miniscule that the complainant can't even pass the ITC's exceedingly lax standard.
