Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

The International Trade Commission has made a summary determination that six defaulting respondents located in China have infringed certain patents for cases for portable electronic devices that are owned by Speculative Product Design LLC.

The ITC is now inviting public comment through April 23 on the form of remedy, if any, that should be ordered in this investigation; the effects of any such remedy on public health and welfare, competitive conditions in the U.S. economy, U.S. production of articles that are like or directly competitive with those that are subject to investigation, and U.S. consumers; and the amount of the bond under which infringing goods could enter the U.S. during the 60-day period the president has to review any ITC-ordered remedy. The presiding administrative law judge in this case has recommended the issuance of a general exclusion order and a bond of 100% of the entered value.
