Friday, June 09, 2017
Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

The International Trade Commission has instituted investigation 337-TA-1060 to determine whether imports of certain consumer electronic devices, including televisions, gaming consoles, mobile phones and tablets, and network-enabled DVD and Blu-ray players, are violating Section 337 of the 1930 Tariff Act by reason of patent infringement.

Complainant ARRIS Enterprises LLC requests that after this investigation the ITC issue a limited exclusion order, which would direct CBP 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 Japan and the U.S.
