Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

The International Trade Commission has instituted investigation 337-TA-1006 to determine whether imports of passenger vehicle automotive wheels with certain designs and/or trademarks are violating Section 337 of the 1930 Tariff Act by reason of patent and trademark infringement.

Complainant Daimler AG requests that after this investigation the ITC issue a general or 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 the U.S.
