The U.S. International Trade Commission has initiated a patent infringement investigation into wireless devices produced by four foreign telecommunications companies.

The probe is based on a complaint filed in early January, by InterDigital Communications and three other US companies. The US companies claim their patents, related to wireless devices with 3G or 4G capabilities, have been infringed upon by telecommunications companies ZTE and Huawei in China, South Korea’s Samsung and Finland’s Nokia. They’ve requested court orders to prevent further infringement.

The U.S. International Trade Commission has set a target for the investigation to be completed within 45 days. Should the complaint be upheld, the panel will issue remedial orders, such as a ban on importation of the infringing products. The United States has launched similar patent probes into Chinese products in recent months.

The Chinese Ministry of Commerce has urged Washington to abide by its commitment to anti-protectionism and efforts to maintain an open and competitive international trade environment.
