Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

ATMs. In patent infringement investigation 337-TA-972 of automated teller machines, ATM modules, components thereof, and products containing the same, the International Trade Commission has determined that certain ATM modules do not infringe patent claims asserted by Diebold Incorporated and Diebold Self-Service Systems.

Portable Electronic Devices. The ITC has terminated without the imposition of import restrictions patent infringement investigation 337-TA-994 of portable electronic devices and components thereof after finding that the asserted patent claims do not recite patent-eligible subject matter under the ITC’s 100-day pilot program, which allows for expedited fact-finding and abbreviated hearing.

Air Mattresses. The ITC has terminated patent infringement investigation 337-TA-999 of air mattress bed systems and components thereof with respect to one patent claim asserted by complainants Select Comfort Corporation and Select Comfort SC Corporation based on their withdrawal of that claim.
