Since then other operators within the Pinedale Anticline have expressed interest in conducting gas development activities including year-round drilling within big game crucial winter range. In the summer of 2005, Anschutz, Shell, and Ultra submitted a proposal to the BLM for year-round drilling demonstration project on three well pads within their leaseholds during one year. In September 2005, BLM issued a Decision Record to allow them to proceed (ASU Year-Round Drilling Demonstration Project, September 2005). The Decision Record allowed each of the three operators to drill yearround on one well pad each on crucial winter range during the winter of 2005– 2006. The result of that project led the Operators to the current proposal and to BLM’s determination that a Supplemental EIS is necessary. The PAPA encompasses approximately 198,034 acres of primarily Federal lands (nearly 80 percent), and state and private land. Approximately 83 percent of the mineral estate underlying the PAPA is federally-owned. James K. Murkin, Acting Associate State Director. [FR Doc.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On June 21, 2005, the Commission instituted 
an investigation under section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930, 19 U.S.C. 
1337, based on a complaint filed by Broadcom Corporation (``Broadcom'') 
of Irvine, California, alleging a violation of section 337 in the 
importation, sale for importation, and sale within the United States 
after importation of certain baseband processor chips and chipsets, 
transmitter and receiver (radio) chips, power control chips, and 
products containing same, including cellular telephone handsets by 
reason of infringement of certain claims of U.S. Patent Nos. 6,374,311; 
6,714,983 (``the '983 patent''); 5,682,379 (``the '379 patent''); 
6,359,872 (``the '872 patent''); and 6,583,675. 70 Fed. Reg. 35707 
(June 21, 2005). The complainant named Qualcomm Incorporated 
(``Qualcomm'') of San Diego, California as the only respondent. The 
'379 patent and '872 patent were terminated from this investigation.
    On October 19, 2006, the presiding administrative law judge 
(``ALJ'') issued an Initial Determination on Violation of Section 337 
and Recommended Determination on Remedy and Bond (``ID''), finding a 
violation of section 337 as to the '983 patent only. On December 8, 
2006, the Commission issued a notice of its decision to review and 
modify in part the ALJ's final ID. The modification made by the 
Commission did not affect the finding of violation.
    On March 21-22, 2007, the Commission held a public hearing on the 
issues of remedy and the public interest. Subsequently, the Commission 
extended the target date for completion of this investigation to June 
7, 2007.
    On June 7, 2007, the Commission issued a limited exclusion order, 
with certain exemptions, prohibiting the importation of Qualcomm's 
baseband processor chips or chipsets, including chips or chipsets 
incorporated into circuit board modules and carriers, that are 
programmed to enable the power saving features covered by claims 1, 4, 
8, 9, or 11 of the '983 patent, as well as handheld wireless 
communication devices, including cellular telephone handsets and PDAs, 
containing Qualcomm baseband processor chips or chipsets that are 
programmed to enable the power saving features covered by these claims. 
The Commission also issued a cease and desist order that prohibits 
Qualcomm from engaging in certain activities in the United States 
related to the infringing chips.
    On November 9, 2007, complainant Broadcom filed a complaint for 
enforcement proceedings under Commission Rule 210.75. Broadcom asserts 
that respondent Qualcomm has violated the Commission's cease and desist 
order by continued marketing of infringing, imported baseband processor 
chips and chipsets, and continued testing and programming of imported 
baseband processor chips and chipsets to transform them into infringing 
products. On December 5 and 7, 2007, respectively, Qualcomm filed a 
letter opposing institution of Broadcom's complaint, and Broadcom filed 
a letter in response to Qualcomm's opposition.
    Having examined the complaint seeking a formal enforcement 
proceeding, and having found that the complaint complies with the 
requirements for institution of a formal enforcement proceeding 
contained in Commission rule 210.75, the Commission has determined to 
institute formal enforcement proceedings to determine whether Qualcomm 
is in violation of the Commission's cease and desist order issued in 
the investigation, and what, if any, enforcement measures are 
appropriate. The following entities are named as parties to the formal 
enforcement proceeding: (1) Complainant Broadcom, (2) respondent 
Qualcomm, and (3) a Commission investigative attorney to be designated 
by the Director, Office of Unfair Import Investigations.
    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 210.75 of the Commission's Rules of Practice and Procedure 
(19 CFR 210.75).
