We explore conditions determining which anti-leakage policies might be more effective complements to domestic greenhouse gas emissions regulation. We consider four policies that could be combined with unilateral emissions pricing to counter effects on international competitiveness: a border charge on imports, a border rebate for exports, full border adjustment, and domestic output-based rebating. Each option faces different potential legal hurdles in international trade law; each also has different economic impacts. While all can support competitiveness, none is necessarily effective at reducing global emissions. Nor is it possible to rank order the options; effectiveness depends on the relative emissions rates, elasticities of substitution, and consumption volumes. We illustrate these results with simulations for the energy-intensive sectors of three different economies, the United States, Canada and Europe. Although most controversial, full border adjustment is usually most effective, but output-based rebating for key manufacturing sectors can achieve many of the gains. © 2012 Elsevier Inc.

Insurance Technologies Corporation (ITC), a provider of agency marketing, rating and management software and services, made homeowner insurance rates available via its web service-based rating API today. Through this service, agencies, carriers, lead providers and online aggregators can get rates from more than 40 homeowner carriers through a single quote request.

In addition to homeowner insurance rates, auto insurance rates from more than 180 companies are also available via the API.

Align had accused competitor ClearCorrect Operating LLC of infringing several patents. The ITC, which can block products from entering the United States, ordered ClearCorrect to stop transmitting digital models produced by technicians in Pakistan to its Texas manufacturing facility. Technology companies and the entertainment industry have followed the case closely because it could affect Internet transmissions and the fight against piracy. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit in Washington, D.C. said data is not a tangible good over which the ITC has authority. Common sense "dictates that there is a fundamental difference between electronic transmissions and 'material things,'" the court said in a 2-1 decision. Critics said the ITC overstepped its authority when it ordered the company to cease transmission of digital models, because U.S. law gives the commission authority over unfair practices "in the importation of articles." The ITC expanded its jurisdiction to say digital data is included in the definition of "articles." High-tech companies like Google Inc and other Internet-related groups said global Internet transmissions should flow unimpeded and the ITC should not be authorized to regulate them. But associations for recording artists and Hollywood film studios saw the ITC's decision as an effective tool to fight piracy, most of which happens through electronic downloads and streaming. On Tuesday, the appeals court majority said articles are material things and thus the commission has no jurisdiction over the case. ClearCorrect's lawyer Michael Myers said in an interview this was the "correct result because the ITC was never intended to be the policeman of Internet or TV transmissions or radio signals." A representative for Align could not immediately be reached for comment. Circuit Judge Pauline Newman dissented from the opinion, saying that the commission must have the power to block the latest forms of infringing technology. Align's shares were trading at $65.74, down $1.34 from Monday's close. The case at the ITC is No. 14-1527.

Shares of Arista Networks dropped after Cisco Systems got the partial backing of staff lawyers at the U.S. International Trade Commission in a patent-infringement case over routers. On Monday, ITC staff lawyers recommended that Arista be found to have infringed two of six Cisco patents in the case. Cisco may have gained a significant advantage over Arista in Cisco's second case at the ITC, Bloomberg Intelligence reported in a note. The staff lawyers' recommendation could have some influence with ITC Judge MaryJoan McNamara, who is hearing the second of two cases Cisco brought against its smaller rival. The trial is scheduled to last through Nov. 20, with the judge issuing her findings in April. Arista closed down 2.2 percent to $68.90 in New York trading, after falling as low as $65.54 earlier in the day. Cisco was down less than 1 percent to $28.18. The first ITC case, involving the same products but different patents, had a trial in September before a different judge who is scheduled to release his findings in May. The staff in that case recommended a finding in Cisco's favor on three of five patents. Cisco is seeking to block Ethernet switches used in data centers made by Arista, which was started by former Cisco employees. The judge's findings will be reviewed by the six- member commission, which has the power to order products halted at the U.S. border if they infringe U.S. patents. Cisco claims Arista built its business on copied and stolen technology, with some technical information including the original typos. While Cisco remains a much larger company, Arista has been winning market share in one of Cisco's most important businesses: the sale of machines called Ethernet switches which are used in data centers by Internet companies, banks and other large companies. Microsoft, Facebook and eBay are among Arista's clients. Arista's switches are based on software that is designed to be easier to use and more cost effective than Cisco's IOS software, which has been almost as widely used by network administrators as Microsoft Windows is for running computers. Cisco also has filed patent- and copyright-infringement lawsuits against Arista in federal court, while Arista has asked the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office to invalidate Cisco's patents.

A state-owned lab in Uttar Pradesh has allegedly found ITC’s Yipee noodles “sub-standard”, a charge that the company vehemently denied. The firm said standards prescribed for different category of products are being applied to its products, which comply with strict quality and hygiene norms. Food Inspector of the UP government, in a report dated August 27, 2015, stated that after testing sample of ITC’s Yipee noodles manufactured at Haridwar, it was found that “total ash of the tastemaker exceeds the maximum prescribed limit of 1 per cent… Hence, the sample is sub-standard.” ITC strongly refuted the claims, saying all its products are “manufactured in state-of-the-art, world-class facilities, complying with strict quality and hygiene norms.” “The contention raised by the food inspector is erroneous. The standards being referred to are for a separate category, Macaroni products. These cannot be applied to instant noodles which is a proprietary food,” it said. ITC said food regulator FSSAI has, in an order dated October 19, 2015, clarified to the Commissioner of Food Safety, Bihar that “instant noodles cannot be tested against the parameters prescribed for dried noodles but have to be tested against the standards stipulated for instant noodles.” First Published on October 31, 2015 9:32 am
