United States ITC Issues Consent Order in HoverCam Patent Protection Case

A consent order has been issued against and agreed upon by Adesso, Inc. to cease importing and selling in the United States after patent infringement detected  

San Diego, CA, Aug. 24, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — HoverCam, a market leader and innovator in the education technology market and DBA of Pathway Innovations and Technologies, Inc., is pleased to announce that the United States International Trade Commission has issued a Consent Order to protect and enforce their document camera design patents.   

As of November 24th, 2015, Adesso, Inc. (“Adesso”) agreed to cease importing into the United States and stop selling already imported document cameras and software that infringe two of Pathway’s design patents: U.S. Patent No. D647,906 and U.S. Patent No. D674,389.  The Exclusion Order is intentionally worded to prevent Adesso from changing the names or model numbers of its infringing products in an attempt to evade the Order, and effectively means that Adesso is prohibited from selling or importing into the United States all document cameras. Previously, the ITC had commenced an investigation against Adesso based on a complaint by Pathway alleging that Adesso was infringing two of Pathway’s design patents.  This Consent Order, willingly entered into by Adesso, represents a significant victory for Pathway in its ongoing campaign to protect and enforce its extensive and expanding intellectual property rights.
