Symbol Technologies To Be Investigated For Patent Violations
The U.S. International Trade Commission launched an investigation charging Symbol violated U.S. trade practices by importing handhelds, components, and communications cradles that infringed on patents held by Intermec Technologies.
The U.S. International Trade Commission has decided to launch an investigation on allegations that Symbol Technologies Inc. has violated U.S. trade practices by importing handheld mobile computing devices, components, and communications cradles that infringe patents held by Intermec Technologies Corp.
The investigation involves three Intermec patents that cover pocket-sized handheld computing devices, modular handheld computing devices, and recharging and data exchange cradles for handheld computing devices. The Symbol products that infringe Intermec patents addressed in the complaint are the MC50, the MC9000, and the PPT8800 handheld mobile computing devices, as well as recharging and data-exchange cradles for those products.
Symbol couldn't be reached for comment.
The ITC is charged with stopping goods that infringe a U.S. company's patents from entering the country. The ITC is expected to make a final determination in the investigation "at the earliest practicable time," according to Intermec, which says an investigation typically takes nine to 12 months to complete.
