Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

The International Trade Commission has instituted investigation 337-TA-875 to determine whether imports of certain radio frequency identification products and components thereof are violating Section 337 of the 1930 Tariff Act by reason of patent infringement. The products at issue in this investigation are ISO 18000-6C compatible RFID transponders, RFID inlays, and RFID readers and their components.

Complainant Neology Inc. requests that after this investigation the ITC issue an exclusion order, which would direct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to prohibit the entry of the 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 the U.S.
