U.S. trade panel to investigate continued infringement in Funai case The International Trade Commission (ITC) sided with Funai Electric Co back in April by ordering a list of companies that includes Vizio, AmTran, TPV Technology, Top Victory Electronics, Envision and Proview International to stop importing and manufacturing screens that violated patented technology. While the order was made in April, Funai complained last month that infringement was ongoing.
"The commission has determined to institute a formal enforcement proceeding to determine whether the respondents are in violation of the commission's limited exclusion order and cease and desist orders issued in the investigation, and what, if any, enforcement measures are appropriate," the panel said in a statement on Tuesday.

Funai has been involved in several legal disputes in the United States with companies that manufacture or import digital screens. It's own customer service has come under sizable criticism too, mostly to do with its warranty service not functioning as advertised.
