IPR Enforcement: ATMs, L-Tryptophan, Semiconductor Devices
ATMs. The ITC has instituted a formal enforcement proceeding to determine whether the limited exclusion and cease and desist orders issued in patent infringement investigation 337-TA-989 of automated teller machines, ATM modules, components thereof, and products containing same are being violated and, if so, what enforcement measures might be appropriate.
L-Tryptophan. In investigation 337-TA-1005 the ITC has determined that the importation, sale for importation, and sale within the U.S. after importation of L-tryptophan, L-tryptophan products, and their methods of production are violating patents asserted by Ajinomoto Co. Inc. and Ajinomoto Heartland Inc. The ITC has also determined that the appropriate remedy is a limited exclusion order against the respondents’ accused products and a cease and desist order against one respondent.
Semiconductor Devices. The ITC has terminated patent infringement investigation 337-TA-1047 of semiconductor devices and consumer audiovisual products containing the same with respect to one respondent group based on a settlement agreement with complainant Broadcom Corporation.
