Probe of Bose claim planned

December 28, 2007|From Times Wire Services

A trade agency will investigate Bose Corp.'s allegations that noise-reduction headphones sold by Panasonic Corp., Logitech International and others infringe two patents.

Bose, maker of the Wave radio and other audio equipment, filed a complaint with the U.S. International Trade Commission last month seeking to block imports of products found to violate the Framingham, Mass.-based company's patents.

The agency said it would conduct a formal probe.

Closely held Bose is trying to gain a ruling that blocks imports into the U.S. of headphones that compete with its QuietComfort brand headphones, which feature technology that reduces outside noise.
