Background

Collapsible Sockets. In patent infringement investigation 337-TA-1056 of collapsible sockets for mobile electronic devices and components thereof, the International Trade Commission has found certain respondents in Hong Kong and China in default. Complainant PopSockets LLC is seeking an exclusion order and cease and desist orders in this investigation.

Road Milling Machines. The ITC has instituted investigation 337-TA-1067 to determine whether imports of road milling machines and components thereof are violating Section 337 of the 1930 Tariff Act by reason of patent infringement. The products at issue are used to mill asphalt and concrete pavement to create an even base for the construction of a new surface. Components subject to this investigation include scrapers, auxiliary drives, height-adjustable lighting columns, milling drum uncoupling functionality, and hydraulically stabilized chassis.

Complainant Wirtgen America 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 Italy, Switzerland, and the U.S.
