The complaint alleged violations of section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930 (19 U.S.C. 1337) in the importation into the United States, the sale for importation, and the sale within the United States after importation of certain variable speed wind turbines and components thereof that infringes claims 121-125 of U.S. Patent No. 5,083,039 and claims 1-12, 15-18, and 21-28 of U.S. Patent No. 6,921,985.
