No IPR Import Restrictions on Consumer Electronics with Display and Processing Capabilities
The International Trade Commission has terminated without the imposition of import restrictions patent infringement investigation 337-TA-884 of certain consumer electronics with display and processing capabilities. These products include computer laptops, netbooks, tablet computers, personal computers, television sets, HD camcorders, and Blu-ray and DVD players.
In November 2014 the ITC announced it would review a final initial determination that the patents at issue were being infringed and that the ITC should issue a limited exclusion order barring the entry of one of the respondent’s infringing goods as well as a cease and desist order against that respondent. However, complainant Graphics Properties Holdings Inc. subsequently reached a settlement agreement with the respondents, which are located in Japan and the U.S.
