Tuesday, May 23, 2017
Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

In investigation 337-TA-972 the International Trade Commission has determined that the importation, sale for importation, and sale within the U.S. after importation of automated teller machines, ATM modules, components thereof, and products containing the same are violating patent claims asserted by Diebold Incorporated and Diebold Self-Service Systems. As a result, the ITC has issued a limited exclusion order prohibiting the entry of infringing goods and cease and desist orders directed to the respondents, although these orders permit the respondents to import replacement parts for their customers who need to repair subject goods imported prior to the date of the orders. The ITC has also determined that a bond in the amount of 100 percent of the entered value is required for infringing goods to continue entering the U.S. during the 60-day presidential review period.
