VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:00 Nov 14, 2006 Jkt 211001 The Commission instituted this investigation on March 14, 2006, based on a complaint filed by Roadmaster (USA) Corporation (‘‘Roadmaster’’) of Eatontown, New Jersey. The complaint, as amended and supplemented, alleges violations of section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended, 19 U.S.C. 1337, in the importation into the United States, the sale for importation, and the sale within the United States after importation of certain portable power stations and packaging therefor by reason of infringement of U.S. Design Patent No. D469,730; U.S. Trademark Registration No. 2,594,538; and U.S. Copyright Registration No. VA–1–261– 495. The complaint further alleges the existence of a domestic industry. The Commission’s notice of investigation names Sinochem Ningbo, Ltd. (‘‘Sinochem’’), of Ningbo, China, as the only respondent. The administrative law judge (‘‘ALJ’’) issued an initial determination on July 12, 2006, finding Sinochem in default, because the respondent failed to reply to the complaint or notice of investigation, and also failed to reply to a show cause order issued by the ALJ on May 24, 2006. The Commission declined to review the ALJ’s determination that the respondent Sinochem defaulted. On August 23, 2006, the Commission issued a notice requesting briefing on the issues of remedy, the public interest, and bonding relating to the default finding of unlawful importation and sale of infringing products by Sinochem. 71 FR 51210 (Aug. 29, 2006). Complainant submitted a brief along with a proposed order on September 5, 2006. The Commission investigative attorney (‘‘IA’’) also submitted a brief along with a proposed order on September 6, 2006, and further submitted a reply brief on September 13, 2006. The Complainant chose not to file a reply brief. Having examined the record of this investigation, including the submissions of the parties, the Commission has determined that each of the statutory requirements of section 337(g)(1), 19 U.S.C. 1337(g)(1), has been met with respect to defaulting respondent Sinochem. Accordingly, pursuant to section 337(g)(1), 19 U.S.C. 1337(g)(1) and Commission Rule 210.16(c), 19 CFR 210.16(c), the Commission presumed the facts alleged in the complaint to be true. The Commission determined that the appropriate form of relief in this investigation is a limited exclusion order prohibiting the unlicensed entry of portable power stations and packaging therefor covered by U.S. Design Patent No. D469,739; U.S. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: PO 00000 Frm 00059 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Trademark Registration No. 2,594,538; or U.S. Copyright Registration No. VA– 1–261–495 that are manufactured abroad by or on behalf of, or imported by or on behalf of, Sinochem or any of its affiliated companies, parents, subsidiaries, or other related business entities, or their successors or assigns. The Commission further determined that the public interest factors enumerated in section 337(g)(1), 19 U.S.C. 1337(g)(1), do not preclude issuance of the limited exclusion order. Finally, the Commission determined that the amount of bond to permit temporary importation during the Presidential review period, under 19 U.S.C. 1337(j), shall be in the amount of 100 percent of the entered value of the infringing imported portable power stations and packaging therefor.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Commission instituted this investigation 
on March 14, 2006, based on a complaint filed by Roadmaster (USA) 
Corporation (``Roadmaster'') of Eatontown, New Jersey. The complaint, 
as amended and supplemented, alleges violations of section 337 of the 
Tariff Act of 1930, as amended, 19 U.S.C. 1337, in the importation into 
the United States, the sale for importation, and the sale within the 
United States after importation of certain portable power stations and 
packaging therefor by reason of infringement of U.S. Design Patent No. 
D469,730; U.S. Trademark Registration No. 2,594,538; and U.S. Copyright 
Registration No. VA-1-261-495. The complaint further alleges the 
existence of a domestic industry. The Commission's notice of 
investigation names Sinochem Ningbo, Ltd. (``Sinochem''), of Ningbo, 
China, as the only respondent.
    The administrative law judge (``ALJ'') issued an initial 
determination on July 12, 2006, finding Sinochem in default, because 
the respondent failed to reply to the complaint or notice of 
investigation, and also failed to reply to a show cause order issued by 
the ALJ on May 24, 2006. The Commission declined to review the ALJ's 
determination that the respondent Sinochem defaulted.
    On August 23, 2006, the Commission issued a notice requesting 
briefing on the issues of remedy, the public interest, and bonding 
relating to the default finding of unlawful importation and sale of 
infringing products by Sinochem. 71 FR 51210 (Aug. 29, 2006). 
Complainant submitted a brief along with a proposed order on September 
5, 2006. The Commission investigative attorney (``IA'') also submitted 
a brief along with a proposed order on September 6, 2006, and further 
submitted a reply brief on September 13, 2006. The Complainant chose 
not to file a reply brief.
    Having examined the record of this investigation, including the 
submissions of the parties, the Commission has determined that each of 
the statutory requirements of section 337(g)(1), 19 U.S.C. 1337(g)(1), 
has been met with respect to defaulting respondent Sinochem. 
Accordingly, pursuant to section 337(g)(1), 19 U.S.C. 1337(g)(1) and 
Commission Rule 210.16(c), 19 CFR 210.16(c), the Commission presumed 
the facts alleged in the complaint to be true. The Commission 
determined that the appropriate form of relief in this investigation is 
a limited exclusion order prohibiting the unlicensed entry of portable 
power stations and packaging therefor covered by U.S. Design Patent No. 
D469,739; U.S. Trademark Registration No. 2,594,538; or U.S. Copyright 
Registration No. VA-1-261-495 that are manufactured abroad by or on 
behalf of, or imported by or on behalf of, Sinochem or any of its 
affiliated companies, parents, subsidiaries, or other related business 
entities, or their successors or assigns.
    The Commission further determined that the public interest factors 
enumerated in section 337(g)(1), 19 U.S.C. 1337(g)(1), do not preclude 
issuance of the limited exclusion order. Finally, the Commission 
determined that the amount of bond to permit temporary importation 
during the Presidential review period, under 19 U.S.C. 1337(j), shall 
be in the amount of 100 percent of the entered value of the infringing 
imported portable power stations and packaging therefor. The 
Commission's order was delivered to the President and the United States 
Trade Representative on the day of its issuance.
    The authority for the Commission's determination is contained in 
section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended, 19 U.S.C. 1337, and 
in section 210.16(c) of the Commission's Rules of Practice and 
Procedure, 19 CFR 210.16(c)).

    By order of the Commission.

    Issued: November 9, 2006.
