Monday, February 29, 2016
Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

In investigation 337-TA-941, the International Trade Commission has determined to review in part a final initial determination that the importation, sale for importation, or sale within the U.S. after importation of graphics processing chips, systems on a chip, and products containing the same are infringing certain patents asserted by Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd and Samsung Austin Semiconductor LLC. The presiding administrative law judge has recommended the issuance of a limited exclusion order against some subject goods imported by the respondents and a cease and desist order against the respondents.

Accordingly, the ITC is seeking through March 7 comments on (a) the form of remedy, if any, that should be ordered, (b) the effects of any such remedy on the public health and welfare, competitive conditions in the U.S. economy, U.S. production of articles that are like or directly competitive with those that are subject to investigation, and U.S. consumers, and (c) the amount of the bond under which infringing goods could continue to enter the U.S. during the 60-day period the president would have to review any ITC-ordered remedy.
