Tuesday, December 30, 2014
Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

In investigation 337-TA-908, the International Trade Commission’s presiding administrative law judge has recommended the issuance of a limited exclusion order against certain infringing soft-edged trampolines and components thereof imported by respondent Vuly Trampolines Pty. Ltd. of Brisbane, Australia. The ITC is now soliciting through Jan. 13 comments on public interest issues raised by the recommended relief; i.e., whether it would affect the public health and welfare in the United States, competitive conditions in the U.S. economy, the production of like or directly competitive articles in the U.S., or U.S. consumers. In particular, the ITC is interested in comments that:

- explain how the articles potentially subject to the recommended orders are used in the U.S.;

- identify any public health, safety or welfare concerns in the U.S. relating to the recommended orders;

- identify like or directly competitive articles that the complainant, its licensees or third parties make in the U.S. that could replace the subject articles if they were to be excluded;

- indicate whether the complainant, its licensees and/or third-party suppliers have the capacity to replace the volume of articles potentially subject to the recommended exclusion order and/or cease and desist order within a commercially reasonable time; and

- explain how the limited exclusion order and/or cease and desist order would impact consumers in the U.S.
