IPR Enforcement: Convertible Sofas, Data Storage Tapes, Amorphous Metal
Convertible Sofas. The International Trade Commission has instituted investigation 337-TA-1122 to determine whether imports of convertible sofas and components thereof are violating Section 337 of the 1930 Tariff Act by reason of patent infringement.
Complainant Sauder Manufacturing Company requests that after this investigation the ITC issue a 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 respondent in this investigation is located in the U.S.
