The United States International Trade Commission (ITC) announced a Section 337 investigation into construction giant Sany for patent infringement in July. The products at issue are mobile cranes that use variable position counterweight technology to improve operation and use of the cranes, according to the statement released by ITC. This is a further investigation targeting Chinese companies after a probe into technology giants Huawei, ZTE and other companies this year. Once the complaint is approved, the panel will issue remedial orders, such as a ban of accused products. The ITC has not yet made any decision on the merits of the case. It will set a timetable within 45 days for completing the investigation.
