Segway Announces the Issuance of a General Exclusion Order by the U.S. ITC
Segway Inc. (“Segway”) announced today the issuance of a General Exclusion Order (“GEO”) on March 10, 2016 by the U.S. International Trade Commission (“ITC”) in Investigation No. 337-TA-935, pertaining to certain personal transporters, components and manuals that infringed certain patent rights of Segway. The GEO prohibits from entry into the U.S. personal transporters that infringe certain specified claims of Segway’s U.S. Patent No. 8,830,048 for the life of that patent, irrespective of the source of the products.
The ITC also issued a limited exclusion order prohibiting the unlicensed entry of infringing personal transporters, components thereof, and manuals therefor that are covered by certain claims in Segway’s U.S. Patent Nos 6,789,640 and 7,275,607, U.S. Design Patent No. D551,722 and D551,592 and U.S. Copyright Registration No. TX-7-800-563, each as manufactured abroad by or on behalf of, or imported by or on behalf of, certain Respondents named in the Investigation and their affiliates. Lastly, the ITC issued a cease and desist order against a defaulting U.S. Respondent prohibiting the sale of infringing personal transporters, components thereof, and manuals therefor that have already been imported into the U.S.
The ITC issues a GEO in situations where it determines that a GEO is necessary to prevent circumvention of an exclusion order limited to products of named persons and/or because there is a pattern of infringing conduct and it is difficult to identify the source of the infringing products.
Segway filed the complaint that led to the subject Investigation on September 9, 2014, against numerous Respondents, including manufacturers, importers and distributors of personal transporters, components thereof, and manuals therefor, alleging infringement of its intellectual property and requesting that the ITC initiate an investigation. The issuance of the GEO marks a successful conclusion of the Investigation for Segway.
Segway owns over 400 patents and patent licenses of core technologies in personal transporters area, accumulated over 16 years of innovation and R&D. Segway respects the intellectual property of others and expects these entities to do the same. Segway remains committed to pursuing legal enforcement against those who do not respect Segway’s intellectual property.
