Motorola Solutions, Inc. (NYSE: MSI) has announced that the US International Trade Commission (ITC) has issued a Notice of Final Determination confirming that certain Hytera Communications Corporation Limited (SHE: 002583) products are infringing four Motorola Solutions patents, the company said.
The ITC has also issued exclusion and cease-and-desist orders for Motorola Solutions´ US Patent Nos. 7,369,869, 7,729,701 and 8,279,991, prohibiting Hytera from importing products into the United States and selling or marketing those products. The ITC also rejected Hytera´s request to allow it to import infringing products or components into the US to repair or replace those in the field. The ruling also affirms Administrative Law Judge McNamara´s finding that Hytera “unquestionably copied certain of Motorola patented technologies.”
A mandatory 60-day presidential review period has now begun, during which the US President may modify the ITC´s Final Determination. The ITC´s exclusion and cease-and-desist orders will take effect on approximately Jan. 15, 2019, when all Hytera products infringing Motorola Solutions´ ´869, ´701 and ´991 patents would be excluded from the US market.
