USITC to probe Samsung after Tessera complaint

The US International Trade Commission (USITC) voted to investigate a complaint by Tessera Advanced Technologies that certain Samsung products infringe Tessera patents.

“The products at issue in the investigation are cellular phones, tablets, laptops, notebook computers, and cameras that include wafer-level packaged semiconductor components,” said the USITC.

“The investigation is based on a complaint filed by Tessera Advanced Technologies, Inc., of San Jose, CA, on September 28, 2017.

“The complaint alleges violations of section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930 in the importation into the United States and sale of certain wafer-level packaging semiconductor devices and products containing same that infringe patents asserted by the complainant.

“The complainant requests that the USITC issue a limited exclusion order and cease and desist orders.”
