Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 157 / Wednesday, August 15, 2007 / Notices with its determination of violation, the Commission issued a Limited Exclusion Order and Cease and Desist Order related to claim 48 of the ‘627 patent and claims 17 and 18 of the ‘173 patent. On June 18, 2007, Metrologic filed a request for an advisory opinion under Commission Rule 210.79 (19 CFR 210.79) that would declare that its new scan module does not infringe claim 17 or 18 of the ‘173 patent and claim 48 of the ‘627 patent, and therefore is not covered by the Commission’s Limited Exclusion Order or Cease and Desist Order issued on May 30, 2007. Metrologic further requested that the Commission conduct all proceedings related to the advisory opinion in an expedited manner and on summary determination based upon the evidence presented in its request without formal hearing or discovery. The Commission has examined Metrologic’s request for an advisory opinion and has determined that it complies with the requirements for institution of an advisory opinion proceeding under Commission Rule 210.79(a). Accordingly, the Commission has determined to institute an advisory opinion proceeding. The Commission directs Symbol and the IA to state their views regarding whether they oppose Metrologic’s request for an advisory opinion that the new scan module is not covered by the Limited Exclusion Order or Cease and Desist Order, and if so, whether they believe the matter should be referred to the ALJ. 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 210.79(a) of the Commission’s Rules of Practice and Procedure (19 CFR 210.79(a)). Issued: August 10, 2007. By order of the Commission. Marilyn R. Abbott, Secretary to the Commission. [FR Doc.
