Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

New IPR Infringement Investigation of Solar Power Systems. The International Trade Commission has instituted investigation 337-TA-811 to determine whether imports of certain integrated solar power systems and components thereof are violating Section 337 of the 1930 Tariff Act by reason of patent infringement. The products at issue are solar energy panels and components thereof.

The complainant requests that after this investigation the ITC issue an exclusion order, which would direct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to prohibit the entry of the infringing products into the U.S., and a cease and desist order, which would require the named respondents to cease actions that violate Section 337, including selling infringing imported articles out of U.S. inventory. The respondents in this investigation are located in Canada and the U.S.
