Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

The International Trade Commission has instituted investigations to determine whether imports of the following products are violating Section 337 of the 1930 Tariff Act by reason of patent infringement.

- investigation 337-TA-1102 of light engines and components thereof (complainant Lumencor Inc.; respondents located in Canada and U.S.)

- investigation 337-TA-1103 of digital video receivers and related hardware and software (complainants Rovi Corporation, Rovi Guides Inc., and Rovi Technologies Corporation; respondents located in the U.S.)

- investigation 337-TA-1104 of multi-domain test and measurement instruments (complainant Tektronix Inc.; respondents located in Germany and U.S.)

In each case the complainant(s) request that after the 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.
