Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

Integrated Circuits. The International Trade Commission has terminated without the imposition of import restrictions patent infringement investigation 337-TA-982 of RF-capable integrated circuits and products containing the same. This action follows the withdrawal of the complaint by ParkerVision Inc.

Arrowheads. In patent infringement investigation 337-TA-1033 of arrowheads with arcuate blades and components thereof, the ITC has upheld a finding that five respondents are in default and terminated the investigation as to the remaining respondents. Complainant Flying Arrow Archery LLC has indicated that it will seek a general exclusion order against the respondents found to be in default.

Adjustable Desks. The ITC has instituted investigation 337-TA-1054 to determine whether imports of height-adjustable desk platforms and components thereof are violating Section 337 of the 1930 Tariff Act by reason of patent infringement.

Complainant Varidesk LLC 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 and the U.S.
