N.D. Cal. says products imported into the US required to be marked for pre-suit damages

The Northern District of California, in Corning Optical Commc’ns Wireless LTD. v. SOLiD, Inc., et al., Case No. 5:14-cv-03750 (Judge Paul S. Grewal) (September 28, 2015), denied plaintiff’s motion for reconsideration of the Court’s order granting summary judgment in favor of defendants that “there is no genuine dispute that Section 287(a) applies to Corning’s claims” because Corning imported patented articles into the US. (slip op. at 2).  The Court also found the location of the sales of the patented products was the US under Section 271(a).
