The complaint named a single respondent, Actions Semiconductor Co., Ltd. of Guangdong, China (‘‘Actions’’). The complaint further alleged that an industry in the United States exists, as required by subsection (a)(2) of section 337. On July 8, 2005, the Commission determined not to review an initial determination (‘‘ID’’) granting SigmaTel’s motion to amend the complaint and notice of investigation to add allegations of infringement of the previously asserted patents and to add an allegation of a violation of section 337 by reason of infringement of claims 1, 6, 9, and 13 of U.S. Patent No. 6,366,522 (‘‘the ’522 patent’’). On October 31, 2005, the Commission determined not to review an ID granting complainant’s motion to terminate the investigation as to the ’279 patent. On March 2006, the presiding administrative law judge (‘‘ALJ’’) issued his final ID and recommended determination on remedy and bonding. The ALJ found a violation of section 337 by reason of infringement of claim 13 of the ’187 patent by Actions’ accused product families 207X, 208X, and 209X, and of claims 1, 6, 9, and 13 of the ’522 PO 00000 Frm 00041 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 53263 patent by Actions’ accused product families 208X and 209X.

On August 20, 2007, complainant SigmaTel and respondent Actions filed a joint petition to rescind the remedial order under Commission Rule 210.76(a)(1) on the basis of a settlement agreement between the parties.

patent''). The complaint named a single respondent, Actions 
Semiconductor Co., Ltd. of Guangdong, China (``Actions''). The 
complaint further alleged that an industry in the United States exists, 
as required by subsection (a)(2) of section 337.
    On July 8, 2005, the Commission determined not to review an initial 
determination (``ID'') granting SigmaTel's motion to amend the 
complaint and notice of investigation to add allegations of 
infringement of the previously asserted patents and to add an 
allegation of a violation of section 337 by reason of infringement of 
claims 1, 6, 9, and 13 of U.S. Patent No. 6,366,522 (``the '522 
patent''). On October 31, 2005, the Commission determined not to review 
an ID granting complainant's motion to terminate the investigation as 
to the '279 patent.
    On March 2006, the presiding administrative law judge (``ALJ'') 
issued his final ID and recommended determination on remedy and 
bonding. The ALJ found a violation of section 337 by reason of 
infringement of claim 13 of the '187 patent by Actions' accused product 
families 207X, 208X, and 209X, and of claims 1, 6, 9, and 13 of the

Commission determined that there is a violation of section 337 of the 
Tariff Act of 1930, as amended, and issued a limited exclusion order 
prohibiting the importation of Actions' infringing products.
    On August 20, 2007, complainant SigmaTel and respondent Actions 
filed a joint petition to rescind the remedial order under Commission 
Rule 210.76(a)(1) on the basis of a settlement agreement between the 
parties. The parties asserted that their settlement agreement 
constituted ``changed conditions of fact or law'' sufficient to justify 
rescission of the order under Commission Rule 210.76(a)(1), 19 CFR 
210.76(a)(1). The Commission investigative attorney filed a response in 
support of the petition on August 29, 2007.
    Having reviewed the parties' submissions, the Commission has 
determined that the settlement agreement satisfies the requirement of 
Commission Rule 210.76(a)(1), 19 CFR 210.76(a)(1), that there be 
changed conditions of fact or law. The Commission therefore has issued 
an order rescinding the limited exclusion order previously issued in 
this investigation.
    This action is taken under the authority of section 337 of the 
Tariff Act of 1930 (19 U.S.C. 1337) and section 210.76(a)(1) of the 
Commission's Rules of Practice and Procedure (19 CFR 210.76(a)(1)).
