IPR Enforcement: Liquid Crystal eWriters, Personal Transporters

Thursday, January 12, 2017
Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

Liquid Crystal eWriters. The International Trade Commission has instituted investigation 337-TA-1035 to determine whether imports of liquid crystal eWriters and components thereof are violating Section 337 of the 1930 Tariff Act by reason of patent infringement. The products at issue are liquid crystal displays that can be used as writing tablets.

Complainant Kent Displays 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 respondents in this investigation are located in China.

Personal Transporters. The ITC has terminated investigations 337-TA-1007 and 337-TA-1021 of personal transporters and components thereof as to all asserted claims of one patent asserted by complainants Segway Inc., DEKA Products Limited Partnership, and Ninebot (Tianjin) Technology Co. Ltd.
