On November 30, 2016, the ITC issued Seizure and Forfeiture Orders in Certain Inkjet Ink Cartridges with Printheads and Components Thereof (Inv. No. 337-TA-723).

In the separate orders (see here and here), the ITC stated that the “U.S. Bureau of Customs and Border Protection (‘Customs’) has informed the Commission that (i) the owner, importer or consignee (or the agent of such person) of certain inkjet cartridges covered by a general exclusion order attempted to import the articles into the United States; (ii) Customs denied entry of the articles into the United States by reason of the general exclusion order; and (iii) upon such denial of entry, Customs provided the owner, importer, or consignee of the articles (or the agent of such person) with written notice of the aforesaid exclusion order and the fact that seizure and forfeiture would result from any further attempt to import the articles into the United States.”

Accordingly, the ITC ordered that “Inkjet Ink Cartridges with Printheads and Components Thereof that are imported in violation of the general exclusion order issued in the above-captioned investigation are to be seized and forfeited to the United States, if imported by the following” firms or any affiliated companies, parents, subsidiaries, or other related business entities, or any of their successors or assigns: (1) Golden State FC LLC, 24300 Nandina Ave., Morena Valley, California 92551; and (2) Discount Ink Inc., 287 Meadowlake Drive, Sunnyvale, California 94089.
