The Commission limited exclusion order does not apply to computer data cards. Also exempted from the Commission limited exclusion order are handheld wireless communications devices that are of the same models as handheld wireless communications devices that were being imported into the United States for sale to the general public on or before the date of the Commission limited exclusion order. The exempted models must be identifiable by specific and verifiable model numbers, denoting model-specific product specifications, features, and functions. Importers will be able to certify to the Bureau of Customs and Border Protection (‘‘Customs’’) that their products are exempted. This exemption will not apply to handheld wireless communications devices that differ in terms of model number, product specifications, features, or functions from wireless handheld communications devices that were being imported into the United States for sale to the general public on or before the date of the Commission limited exclusion order. To assist enforcement of the exclusion order, and to aid importers seeking a good faith basis on which to certify that products are exempted as pre-existing models, we encourage importers and parties that sell downstream devices to members of the general public to supply Customs, as soon as practicable, information and supporting documentation as to those handset models that contain the infringing chips and that were being imported for sale to the general public on or before the date of the limited exclusion order. That submission should include a complete list of the product specifications, features, and functions associated with each exempted model number. Imports of prototypes, or downstream devices for use in testing, for limited-scale distribution for marketing or other purposes, or any purpose other than widespread sales to end use consumers, do not constitute imports for sale to the general public. The Commission has also determined to issue a cease and desist order that prevents Qualcomm from engaging in certain activities in the United States related to the infringing chips. The Commission found that, while exclusion of all downstream products could adversely affect the public interest as enumerated in section 337(d)(1) (19 U.S.C. 1337(d)(1)), the exemption for previously imported models sufficiently ameliorates this VerDate Aug<31>2005 18:30 Jun 12, 2007 Jkt 211001 impact such that the limited exclusion and cease and desist orders should be issued. Finally, the Commission determined that the amount of bond to permit temporary importation during the Presidential review period (19 U.S.C. § *1337(j)) shall be in the amount of one hundred (100) percent of entered value for infringing chips or chipsets imported separately, or five (5) percent of entered value per handheld wireless communications device containing infringing chips or chipsets. Pursuant to subsection (j) of section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended, 19 U.S.C. 1337(j), from the day after this Order is received by the United States Trade Representative (70 FR 43251 (July 21, 2005)), this bond will be in effect until such time as the United States Trade Representative notifies the Commission that she approves or disapproves this action but, in any event, not later than sixty (60) days after the date of receipt of this action. Vice Chairman Shara L. Aranoff, Commissioner Deanna Tanner Okun, Commissioner Charlotte R. Lane, and Commissioner Irving A. Williamson voted in favor of the remedial orders. They provide their supporting analysis in two separate opinions. Chairman Daniel R. Pearson and Commissioner Dean A. Pinkert dissented and provide additional and dissenting views. 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 § 210.50 of the Commission’s Rules of Practice and Procedure (19 CFR 210.50). Issued: June 7, 2007. By order of the Commission. Marilyn R. Abbott, Secretary to the Commission. [FR Doc.
