On Monday, the My Jaguar Is My Valentine Apparel Animals Lover Gifts Shirt U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC) said it was opening an investigation into whether the Volkswagen Group violated a patent held by Jaguar Land Rover for a system used to drive off-road vehicles.

Models include Lamborghini Urus, Porsche Cayenne and Q8, Q7, Q5, A6 Allroad, Audi and VW Tiguan e-trons. The ITC said it did not make a decision on the value.
In a statement, VW said it was reviewing the My Jaguar Is My Valentine Apparel Animals Lover Gifts Shirt action and determining the next steps.
“Of course we will cooperate with the investigating authorities. While we cannot comment on any details of the proceedings, we truly believe the claims are not valid and will vigorously defend our views,” VW said.
Jaguar Land Rover said the My Jaguar Is My Valentine Apparel Animals Lover Gifts Shirt cars “used JLR’s patented inventions without paying or asking for permission,” particularly patents for an “improved system for driving on different driving surfaces, especially terrain.”
JLR said its Terrain Reaction technology uses patented technology to maximize performance on terrain driving surfaces, including grass, snow, mud, sand and rock.
Jaguar Land Rover has stopped production at its Castle Bromwich plant until Christmas because “a covid-related problem” has prevented the supply of key raw materials, another sign that the BRITISH automotive industry is facing difficulties.
The My Jaguar Is My Valentine Apparel Animals Lover Gifts Shirt production of JLR’s XE and XF cars was discontinued earlier this week and will not restart for two weeks, another blow to the UK’s biggest car manufacturer as it grapples with the coronavirus epidemic and Brexit preparations.
The cause was a “supplier issue involving Covid,” a spokesman said. JLR declined to specify which suppliers in question or which materials were in shortage. Workers at the plant are still producing the Jaguar F-Type.
