USITC issues seizure and forfeit orders

April 18, 2023

The U.S. International Trade Commission has issued seizure and forfeit orders to Katun Corporation and its parent company General Plastic Industrial Co., Ltd.

The United States International Trade Commission (USITC) issued a General Exclusion Order (GEO) following their investigation No. 337-TA-1259 last August, having found in Canon’s favour, that that product sold by Katun Corporation and its parent company General Plastic Industrial Co., Ltd. (GPI) infringed Canon’s intellectual property.

In April 2021, the USITC announced its decision to conduct investigations into Canon’s complaint that 26 companies are infringing one or more of their imageRUNNER patents. Canon asserted the following patents have been infringed: 8,565,649; 9,354,551; 9,753,402; 10,209,667; 10,289,060; 10,289,061; 10,295,957; 10,488,814; 10,496,032; 10,496,033; 10,514,654; 10,520,881; and 10,520,882.

The patents relate to the Canon imageRUNNER copier series and the following toner supply containers: GPR-51, GPR-52, GPR-53, GPR-53/GPR-53L, GPR-55/GPR-55L, GPR-57, GPR-58 and GPR-62.

On 13 April, the USITC has issued two new seizure and forfeiture orders on behalf of Canon Inc. against Katun Corporation and its parent company General Plastic Industrial Co., Ltd. stating that “that the issuance of a seizure and forfeiture order concerning the articles would be appropriate pursuant to section 337(i) of the Tariff Act of 1930 (19 U.S.C. § 1337(i)),”.
