By the District Director, Los Angeles District Office, 
Western Region, Enforcement Bureau:

     1.   This is an Official Citation issued pursuant to 
Section 503(b)(5) of the Communications Act of 1934, as 
amended (``Act''),1 to COP-USA Inc. for violation of  
Section 302(b) of the Communications Act, and Section 
2.803(a)2 of the Commission's Rules (``Rules'') for 
marketing unauthorized radio frequency devices in the United 
States.  As explained below, future violations of the 
Commission's rules in this regard may subject your company 
to monetary forfeitures.

     2.   Investigation by the FCC's Los Angeles Office 
revealed that on November 2, 2005, COP-USA, on its website 
and at its City of Industry location, marketed unauthorized 
radio devices, specifically a cell phone jammer, model CPB-
01, and various models of wireless video/audio transmitters 
and associated receivers, which have not been certificated 
for sale or use in the United States.

     3.   Section 302(b) of the Act provides that ``[n]o 
person shall manufacture, import, sell, offer for sale, or 
ship devices or home electronic equipment and systems, or 
use devices, which fail to comply with regulations 
promulgated pursuant to this section.''  Section 2.803(a)(1) 
of the Commission's implementing regulations provides that:

     ``no person shall sell or lease, or offer for sale or 
     lease (including advertising for sale or lease), or 
     import, ship, or distribute for the purpose of selling 
     or leasing or offering for sale or lease, any radio 
     frequency device unless ... [i]n the case of a device 
     subject to certification, such device has been 
     authorized by the Commission in accordance with the 
     rules in this chapter and is properly identified and 
     labeled as required by  2.925 and other relevant 
     sections in this chapter.''

     4.   Inspection of the devices revealed that they bore 
no FCC equipment authorization or any other unique 
identification label as required by Section 2.925 of the 
Rules for radiofrequency devices marketed in the United 
States.3  A search of the FCC's equipment authorization 
database showed no evidence that these devices have been 
certified. The devices being offered for sale by COP-USA are 
not approved for use in the United States and therefore the 
marketing and/or sale of such devices in the United States 
is prohibited.  

     5.   Violations of the Act or the Commission's Rules 
may subject the violator to substantial monetary 
forfeitures,4 seizure of equipment through in rem forfeiture 
action, and criminal sanctions, including imprisonment.5

          be used by the Commission 
to determine if further enforcement action is required.6  
Any knowingly or willfully false statement made in reply to 
this Citation is punishable by fine or imprisonment.7
