Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

The International Trade Commission has determined to rescind the limited exclusion order issued in investigation 337-TA-501 of certain encapsulated integrated circuit devices and products containing same. This order was issued in April 2014 after a decade of proceedings and prohibited the unlicensed entry of covered products that are found to infringe certain patents owned by Amkor Technology Inc. and are manufactured abroad or imported by or on behalf of three respondents or any of their affiliated companies, parents, subsidiaries or other related business entities, or their successors or assigns. The respondents and complainant subsequently petitioned the ITC to rescind the LEO on the basis of a settlement providing that all articles currently covered by the LEO are now licensed.
