(together, “TCL”); MediaTek Inc., MediaTek USA Inc., MStar Semiconductor, Inc. (together, “MediaTek”); and Realtek Semiconductor Corp. (“Realtek”). This investigation is in response to DivX’s complaint filed with the ITC on September 10, 2020, alleging that these parties have engaged in unfair trade practices by the importation, sale for importation, and/or sale after importation into the United States of products that infringe one or more claims of DivX’s U.S. Patent Nos. 8,832,297; 10,212,486; 10,412,141; and 10,484,749 (collectively, the “DivX Patents”). “For the past 20 years, DivX has invested in the research, development and advancement of digital video technology,” said DivX CEO, Brian Way. “To protect our investment, we have amassed over 400 pending and issued patents that we use in our products, and license to consumers as well as streaming video providers and consumer electronics manufacturers.
