U.S. International Trade Commission Schedules Public Hearing On 'Downstream Products' Exclusion Order In Section 337 Case Involving Cellphones


The U.S. International Trade Commission (“ITC”) has taken the unusual step of scheduling a public hearing before the full six-member Commission to receive public testimony and comments on the remedy to be provided in a case of patent infringement that may be of interest to a great number of

businesses and consumers. The general relevance of the proceedings may be apparent from the end phrase of the investigation’s long caption: “Certain Baseband Processor Chips and Chipsets, Transmitter and Receiver (Radio) Chips, Power Control Chips, and Products Containing Same,

Including Cellular Telephone Handsets ,” Inv. No. 337-TA-543 (emphasis added). Thus, the ITC may, in this investigation, issue an exclusion order that could potentially exclude all mobile telephone handsets that include the infringing chips.
