Notice is hereby given that a complaint and a motion for temporary relief were filed with the U.S. International Trade Commission on January 14, 2013, under section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended, 19 U.S.C. 1337, on behalf of Radio Systems Corporation of Knoxville, Tennessee. Supplements to the complaint were filed on February 6, 2013. The complaint alleges violations of section 337 based upon the importation into the United States, the sale for importation, and the sale within the United States after importation of certain electronic bark control collars by reason of infringement of certain claims of U.S. Patent No. 5,927,233 (“the `233 patent”). The complaint further alleges that an industry in the United States exists as required by subsection (a)(2) of section 337.
The complainant requests that the Commission institute an investigation and, after the investigation, issue an exclusion order and a cease and desist order.
The motion for temporary relief requests that the Commission issue a temporary limited exclusion order and temporary cease and desist order prohibiting the importation into and the sale within the United States after importation of certain electronic bark control collars that infringe claims 1, 3, 6, 8, 9, and 15 of the `233 patent during the course of the Commission's investigation.
