Amazon among firms named in infringement complaint

Style Pantry LLC of California is claiming intellectual property law violations have been committed with the importation and sale of women’s clothing.

 

    The International Trade Commission on Wednesday received a complaint from Beverly Hills, Calif.-based Style Pantry LLC seeking relief under Section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930 for alleged intellectual property law violations by the importation, sale for importation and sale within the United States after importation of certain female fashion dresses, jumpsuits, maxi skirts and accoutrements, the ITC said.
      Named as respondents were Amazon.com and Xunyun and Jianzhang Liao, both of China.
      Style Pantry is seeking a general exclusion order and limited exclusion order on imports of subject apparel and imposition of a bond during the ITC’s 60-day review period.
      ITC remedy orders in Section 337 cases are effective upon issuance and become final 60 days later, unless disapproved for policy reasons by the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative within that two-month period.

    The ITC is seeking comments on any public interest issues raised by the complaint no later than by the close of business on April 3.
      Section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930 declares infringement of a U.S. patent, copyright, registered trademark or mask work to be unlawful in import trade. The provision also holds as unlawful other unfair methods of competition and unfair acts in the importation and subsequent sale of products in the United States, the threat or effect of which is to destroy or substantially injure a domestic industry, prevent establishment of such an industry or restrain or monopolize U.S. trade and commerce.
      If it finds violations under the statute, the ITC may issue orders prohibiting the importation of certain products into the United States.

However, if shipping alliances are outlawed altogether, then freight rates will skyrocket because alliances are the only way that carriers can operate ultra-large container ships (ULCVs) effectively.

Average container vessel size on the Asia to North Europe trade actually shrank between May 2018 and May 2019, falling from 14,253 TEUs to 13,808 TEUs, although total container vessel count on the trade rose from 219 to 229, according to BlueWater Reporting’s Capacity Report.
