Friday, December 18, 2015
Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

The International Trade Commission has instituted investigation 337-TA-977 to determine whether imports of arrowheads with deploying blades and components thereof and packaging therefor are violating Section 337 of the 1930 Tariff Act by reason of patent and trademark infringement. The products at issue are arrowheads for hunting with blades that deploy upon impacting a target.

Complainants FeraDyne Outdoors LLC and Out RAGE LLC request that after this investigation the ITC issue a general exclusion order, which would direct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to prohibit the entry of 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. The respondents in this investigation are located in China.
