Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

Graphics Systems. The International Trade Commission has terminated patent infringement investigation 337-TA-1044 of graphics systems, components thereof, and consumer products containing the same with respect to four patent claims asserted by complainants Advanced Micro Devices Inc. and ATI Technologies ULC.  

Two-Way Radios. The ITC has terminated patent infringement investigation 337-TA-1053 of two-way radio equipment and systems, related software, and components thereof with respect to numerous patent claims asserted by complainant Motorola Solutions Inc.

Mobile Electronic Devices. The ITC has terminated patent infringement investigations 337-TA-990 and -1004 of mobile and portable electronic devices incorporating haptics (including smartphones and laptops) and components thereof with respect to several patent claims asserted by complainant Immersion Corporation.

Nail Guns. The ITC has instituted investigation 337-TA-1082 to determine whether imports of gas spring nailer products and components thereof are violating Section 337 of the 1930 Tariff Act by reason of patent infringement. The products at issue are often used for commercial and residential construction projects.

Complainant Kyocera Senco Brands Inc. 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.

Personal Computers. The ITC has instituted investigation 337-TA-1083 to determine whether imports of personal computers, mobile devices, digital media players, and microconsoles are violating Section 337 of the 1930 Tariff Act by reason of patent infringement.

Complainants Aqua Connect Inc. and Strategic Technology Partners LLC request that the ITC issue temporary exclusion orders and cease and desist orders based on a motion for temporary relief. They also request that the ITC ultimately issue a limited exclusion order and cease and desist order. The respondent in this investigation is located in the U.S.
