ITC To Investigate Patent Infringement Claim Against Sandisk

sandisk-memory-cardsApart from via the courts, there is a separate route for seeking justice against patent infringers. It is possible to bring a complaint to the US International Trade Commission (ITC).

Memory Technologies, a subsidiary of non-practising entity Pendrell Corporation brought such a complaint against Sandisk on December 6, 2016, which was amended on December 12, 2016 and supplemented on December 27, 2016.

The complaint alleges violations of section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930 in the importation into the United States and sale of certain flash memory devices and components thereof that allegedly infringe patents asserted by the complainant.

The ITC has decided to investigate whether Sandisk’s SD cards and microSD cards for use in cameras and other electronic devices infringe Memory Technologies patents.
