Status Report 状况说明

2020 11 20 日,美国合成公司(“USS”)要求美国国际贸易委员会对福建省万龙新材料科技有限公司(万龙等)展开调查(“ITC 调查 ) 声称侵犯了某些专利。我们了解到万龙的客户担心从万龙购买产品,因为 ITC USS 的诉讼悬而未决。鉴于调查中的文件和案件的发展情况,我们此前提出,本次ITC调查对万龙客户现阶段采购产品的风险较低,我们提供了意见。

目前,ITC已经提供了不存在侵权的初步裁决,这意味着万龙在美国没有违反专利法,可以自由在美国销售和进口其产品。初步决定可在

On November 20th,2020, US Synthetic Corporation (“USS”) requested that the United StatesInternational Trade Commission commence an investigation (“ITC investigation”)against, among others, Fujian Wanlong Superhard Material Technology Co., Ltd.(“Wanlong”) asserting infringement of certain patents. We understand Wanlong’sclients are concerned about purchasing products from Wanlong in light of thepending ITC litigation with USS. In view of documents in the investigation andthe development of the case, previously we provided that this ITC investigationimposes low risk on Wanlong’s clients in purchasing products at current stage,and we provided our opinion.

Currently, ITC hasprovided its initial decision finding no infringement, which means that Wanlonghas no violation of patent law in the United States, and it is free to sell inand import into the US its products. The initial determination can be found at   https://www.usitc.gov/secretary/fed_reg_notices/337/337_1236_notice03022021sgl.pdf. Such initialdecision is public information. The next step is the final decision to beissued by the commission, which will decide whether it will adopt the initialdecision, and the deadline for such decision is July 2022.
