New IPR Infringement Investigations of Mobile Device Wafers, Document Cameras
The International Trade Commission has instituted investigations to determine whether imports of the following products are violating Section 337 of the 1930 Tariff Act by reason of patent infringement.
- investigation 337-TA-966 of silicon-on-insulator wafers, which are used in the manufacture of radio frequency modules for smartphones and other mobile devices (complainant Silicon Genesis Corp.; respondent located in France)
- investigation 337-TA-967 of document cameras and software for use therewith, which display, manipulate, zoom and resize high-resolution images and video (complainant Pathway Innovations & Technologies Inc.; respondents located in the U.S.)
In each case the complainant requests that after the investigation the ITC issue an exclusion order, which would direct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to prohibit the entry of the infringing products into the U.S., and a cease and desist order, which would require the named respondents to cease actions that violate Section 337, including selling infringing imported articles out of U.S. inventory.
