U.S. International Trade Commission Institutes Section 337 Investigation on Certain Equipment for Communications Networks
Jun 16 11
The U.S. International Trade Commission has voted to institute an investigation of certain equipment for communications networks, including switches, routers, gateways, bridges, wireless access points, cable modems, IP phones, and products containing same. The investigation is based on a complaint filed by MOSAID Technologies, Inc., of Canada, on May 17, 2011. The complaint alleges violations of section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930 in the importation into the United States and sale of certain equipment for communications networks, including switches, routers, gateways, bridges, wireless access points, cable modems, IP phones, and products containing same that infringe patents asserted by the complainant. The complainant requests that the USITC issue an exclusion order and cease and desist orders. The USITC has identified the following as respondents in this investigation: Cisco Systems, Inc.; Cisco Consumer Products LLC; Cisco Systems International B.V.; and Scientific Atlanta LLC. By instituting this investigation, the USITC has not yet made any decision on the merits of the case. The USITC's Chief Administrative Law Judge will assign the case to one of the USITC's six administrative law judges (ALJ), who will schedule and hold an evidentiary hearing. The ALJ will make an initial determination as to whether there is a violation of section 337; that initial determination is subject to review by the Commission. The USITC will make a final determination in the investigation at the earliest practicable time. Within 45 days after institution of the investigation, the USITC will set a target date for completing the investigation. USITC remedial orders in section 337 cases are effective when issued and become final 60 days after issuance unless disapproved for policy reasons by the U.S. Trade Representative within that 60-day period.
