United States International Trade Commission (USITC) has issued a seizure forfeiture order of ink cartridges and components to KYDC LLC and its affiliated companies.

The U.S. Bureau of Customs and Border Protection (“Customs”) has denied entry of the articles related to the investigation No. 337-TA-946 by the company into the U.S. Later, the Customs reported to the USITC. In response to the Customs’ report, the USITC approved and issued the seizure and forfeiture order against the company.
