Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

Memory Modules. The International Trade Commission has instituted investigation 337-TA-1023 to determine whether imports of memory modules and components thereof and products containing same are violating Section 337 of the 1930 Tariff Act by reason of patent infringement. The products at issue are memory modules, including JEDEC-standard DDR4 RDIMMs and LRDIMMs.

Complainant Netlist 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 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 Korea and the U.S.

Automotive Wheels. The ITC has terminated patent and trademark infringement investigation 337-TA-1006 of passenger vehicle automotive wheels with respect to one respondent based on a consent order with complainant Daimler AG.
