Hearing-impaired persons are advised that information on this matter can be obtained by contacting the Commission’s TDD terminal on (202) 205–1810. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This investigation was instituted on October 26, 2005, based on a complaint filed by Symbol Technologies Inc. (‘‘Symbol’’) of Holtsville, New York. The complaint, as amended, alleged violations of Section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930 (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 laser bar code scanners or scan engines, components thereof, or products containing the same, by reason of infringement of various claims of United States Patent Nos. 5,457,308 (‘‘the ‘308 patent’’); 5,545,889 (‘‘the ‘889 patent’’); 6,220,514 (‘‘the ‘514 patent’’); 5,262,627 (‘‘the ‘627 patent’’); and 5,917,173 (‘‘the ‘173 patent’’). The complaint named two respondents: Metro Technologies Co., Ltd. of Suzhou, China, and Metrologic Instruments, Inc. of Blackwood, New Jersey (collectively, ‘‘Metrologic’’). PO 00000 Frm 00104 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 On January 29, 2007, the ALJ issued an initial determination (‘‘ID’’) finding a violation of section 337 in the importation of certain laser bar code scanners and scan engines, components thereof, and products containing the same, in connection with certain asserted claims. The ID also issued monetary sanctions against Respondents for discovery abuses. Complainant, Respondents, and the Commission investigative attorney (‘‘IA’’) each filed petitions for review of the ID on February 8, 2007. They each filed responses to each other’s petitions on February 16, 2007. The Commission determined to review the following issues: (1) The construction of the limitation ‘‘single, unitary, flexural component’’ in the ‘173 patent, and related issues of infringement, domestic industry, and validity; (2) the construction of the limitation ‘‘oscillatory support means’’ in the ‘627 patent, and related issues of infringement, domestic industry, and validity; (3) the construction of claims in the ‘889 patent containing ‘‘central area’’ limitations, and related issues of infringement, domestic industry, and validity; (4) the construction of the ‘‘scan fragment’’ limitation in the asserted claims of the ‘308 patent; and (5) the construction of the term ‘‘plurality’’ in the asserted claims of the ‘308 patent. On May 30, 2007, the Commission determined to make the following modifications to the claim constructions set forth in the final ID: (1) In the ‘173 patent, the ‘‘single, unitary, flexural component’’ must include ‘‘portions integral with each other;’’ (2) in the ‘627 patent, the ‘‘oscillatory support means’’ must oscillate; (3) the limitations in the ‘889 patent containing requirements that the folding mirror be ‘‘near’’ or ‘‘adjacent’’ the central area of the collecting mirror allow for the folding mirror to be positioned close to, and either in front of or behind, the central area of the collecting mirror, but do not allow it to be mounted to the collecting mirror outside of the central area; (4) ‘‘scan fragment,’’ as used in the ‘308 patent, means ‘‘a scan that reads less than all of a bar code symbol and that would have been discarded before the advent of scan-stitching techniques;’’ and (5) the term ‘‘plurality’’ in the ‘308 patent means ‘‘two or more.’’ These changes did not affect the ALJ’s findings on validity, infringement, or domestic industry. The Commission therefore affirmed those findings, as well as his finding of a violation of section 337 by Metrologic with regard to claim 48 of the ‘627 patent and claims 17 and 18 of the ‘173 patent.
