VARIDESK® ACHIEVES GENERAL EXCLUSION ORDER BANNING IMPORTATION OF INFRINGING HEIGHT-ADJUSTABLE STANDING DESKS

DALLAS, January 28, 2020 - The United States International Trade Commission (ITC) concluded its investigation into the widespread infringement of the VARIDESK patented height-adjustable standing desk. The verdict brings sweeping relief to VARIDESK in the form of a general exclusion order (GEO) and cease-and-desist orders (CDOs) against infringers.


The GEO bars importation, sale for importation, and sale after importation of height-adjustable standing desks by any party—whether or not the party was named in the ITC investigation. U.S. Customs and Border Protection will enforce the GEO excluding infringing products from the United States for the life of the patents.


This is the fourth time the ITC has instituted an investigation to protect VARIDESK patents from infringing imports. More than 40 parties were named as respondents in these investigations.


VARIDESK will remain vigilant in the protection of its intellectual property through enforcement.
