US Trade Commission Will Investigate  Dish Network Case

The United States International Trade Commission has consented to examine the conclusions of a court in a case involving ongoing litigation brought by Dish Network against iFit, Peloton, and lululemon. Because of this situation, the three corporations can decide to stop importing goods.

To provide a brief overview, Dish Network first filed a lawsuit against the fitness firms in the spring of 2021, stating that the companies had infringed upon five of its patents. The lawsuit focuses on one aspect of Dish Network’s service: the capacity to stream videos of varying quality depending on the bandwidth available to the connected user. This feature has the potential to eliminate broadcasting and buffering problems.

In addition to filing a lawsuit against the corporations, Dish Network also asked the USITC to halt imports from those businesses until the lawsuit was resolved by the court.

In September of this past year, a court ruled that the firms in question infringe upon four copyrights owned by Dish Network, so opening the way for the possibility of import restrictions. But, the United States International Trade Commission has decided to examine more closely at the judge’s conclusions more.

The Commission asks that the parties provide briefings on specific concerns that are currently being reviewed. The Commission also asks for briefings on the issues of remedies, the public good, and bonding from the participants, appropriate government agencies, and relevant people. The Commission will also look at the issue of whether or not persons who currently possess the items in question will be affected by a prospective restriction on imports and will search for answers to that question.
