New Patent Infringement Investigation of Driver Assistance Cameras
The International Trade Commission has instituted investigation 337-TA-907 to determine whether imports of certain vision-based driver assistance system cameras and components thereof are violating Section 337 of the 1930 Tariff Act by reason of patent infringement. The products at issue are used in automobiles to provide information about the surroundings of the vehicle.
Complainant Magna Electronics Inc. requests that after this investigation the ITC issue a limited 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 respondent to cease actions that violate Section 337, including selling infringing imported articles out of U.S. inventory. The respondent in this investigation is located in the U.S.
