New IPR Infringement Investigations of Kinesiotherapy Devices, Integrated Circuits. The International Trade Commission has instituted the following investigations to determine whether imports of the products indicated are violating Section 337 of the 1930 Tariff Act by reason of patent infringement.

• investigation 337-TA-822 of certain integrated circuits, chipsets and products containing same, including televisions (respondents located in Taiwan, Japan, Hong Kong, China and the U.S.)

• investigation 337-TA-823 of certain kinesiotherapy devices and components thereof (respondents located in Sweden, China, the Netherlands and the U.S.)

In each case the complainants request that after the 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 cease and desist orders, which would require the named respondents to cease actions that violate Section 337, including selling infringing imported articles out of U.S. inventory.
