Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

The International Trade Commission has terminated without the imposition of import restrictions patent infringement investigation 337-TA-876 of certain microelectromechanical systems and products containing the same. MEMS devices are microscopic sensors embedded in portable consumer electronics devices such as smart phones and video game controllers that detect how the user is tilting, rotating or otherwise moving the device. This termination is based on a settlement agreement and a patent cross-license agreement between complainant STMicroelectronics Inc. and one of the respondents.

The ITC has also terminated without the imposition of import restrictions patent infringement investigation 337-TA-896 of certain thermal support devices for infants, infant incubators, infant warmers and components thereof.
