Download as PDF 11680 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 43 / Tuesday, March 4, 2008 / Notices sroberts on PROD1PC70 with NOTICES Incorporated of San Diego, California (‘‘Qualcomm’’). 71 FR 39362 (July 12, 2006). 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 mobile telephone handsets, wireless communications devices, and components thereof by reason of infringement of certain claims of six U.S. patents. The complaint and notice of investigation named Nokia Corporation of Finland and Nokia Inc. of Irving, Texas (collectively, ‘‘Nokia’’), as respondents. The complaint, as amended, further alleged that an industry in the United States exists as required by subsection 337(a)(2). Only claims 1 and 3 of U.S. Patent No. 5,452,473 (‘‘the ’473 patent’’), claim 1 of U.S. Patent No. 5,590,408 (‘‘the ’408 patent’’), and claim 2 of U.S. Patent No. 5,655,220 (‘‘the ’220 patent’’) remain in the investigation. On December 12, 2007, the ALJ issued his final ID finding no violation of section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930 (19 U.S.C. *1337). Specifically, the ALJ determined that there had been an importation of Nokia’s accused products, and that none of Nokia’s accused products infringe the asserted claims of the ’473, ’408, or ’220 patents. With regard to claims 1 and 3 of the ’473 patent, the ALJ determined these asserted claims were not proven to be invalid under the best mode requirement of 35 U.S.C. *112 or anticipated under 35 U.S.C. *102. The ALJ also determined that claims 1 and 3 of the ’473 patent were proven to be invalid as obvious under 35 U.S.C. *103. With regard to claim 1 of the ’408 patent and claim 2 of the ’220 patent, the ALJ determined that these asserted claims were not proven to be invalid. The ALJ determined that a domestic industry exists that practices the ’473, ’408, and ’220 patents. Finally, the ALJ made a recommendation that if the Commission finds a violation under section 337, a limited exclusion and cease and desist orders should issue with a bond set in the amount of 100 percent of entered value during the 60 day period of Presidential review. On January 9, 2008, Qualcomm and Nokia each filed petitions for review. The Commission Investigative Attorney (‘‘IA’’) did not file a petition for review. On January 23, 2008, Qualcomm and Nokia filed responses to each other’s petitions for review. The IA filed his response to both petitions on January 24, 2008. VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:57 Mar 03, 2008 Jkt 214001 On February 5, 2008, Qualcomm filed a letter requesting that the Commission consider the recent Federal Circuit decision in Oatey Co. v. IPS, Corp., Case No. 07–1214, slip op. (Fed. Cir. Jan. 30, 2008). Nokia filed a responsive letter on February 6, 2008. Having examined the record of this investigation, including the ALJ’s final ID and the submissions of the parties, the Commission has determined not to review the ALJ’s determination. 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 210.42–45 of the Commission’s Rules of Practice and Procedure (19 CFR 210.42–45). Issued: February 27, 2008. By order of the Commission. Marilyn R. Abbott, Secretary to the Commission. [FR Doc.
