IPR Import Restrictions on Network Devices Modified

Wednesday, April 11, 2018
Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

In patent infringement investigation 337-TA-945 of network devices, related software, and components thereof, the International Trade Commission has determined to suspend enforcement of the limited exclusion order and cease and desist order issued with respect to the claims of one patent that the ITC found to be infringed. This action follows the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit’s determination that these patent claims are unpatentable.

The LEO prohibits the unlicensed entry of subject goods that infringe any of the patent claims asserted by complainant Cisco Systems Inc. and the CDO prohibits the respondent from importing, selling, marketing, advertising, distributing, transferring (except for exportation), soliciting U.S. agents or distributors, and aiding or abetting other entities in the importation, sale for importation, sale after importation, transfer (except for exportation), or distribution of infringing goods.
