Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

The International Trade Commission has terminated in its entirety, without the imposition of import restrictions, investigation 337-TA-924 of certain light reflectors and components, packaging and related advertising thereof. The products at issue are used in indoor and greenhouse gardening.

This termination is based on the withdrawal by Sunlight Supply Inc. and IP Holdings LLC of their complaint, which had alleged violations of Section 337 of the 1930 Tariff Act by reason of patent infringement, trademark infringement and false advertising. The complainants had initially sought an exclusion order, which would have prohibited the entry of infringing products into the U.S., and cease and desist orders, which would have required the named respondents to cease actions that violation Section 337, including selling infringing imported articles out of U.S. inventory.
