Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

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

- investigation 337-TA-1044 of graphics systems, components thereof, and consumer products containing the same, which include televisions, smartphones, tablets, wearable devices, graphics processors, integrated circuits, and other consumer products containing such components and systems (complainants Advanced Micro Devices Inc. and ATI Technologies ULC; respondents located in Korea, Taiwan, and the U.S.)

- investigation 337-TA-1045 of document cameras and software for use therewith, which are visual presentation equipment that provide for the high-resolution and enhanced zoom imaging of documents and objects for real-time visual presentations (complainant Pathway Innovations and Technologies Inc.; respondents located in the U.S.)

In each case the complainant requests 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.
