Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 74, No. 69 / Monday, April 13, 2009 / Notices to anticipation, invalidity due to obviousness, and direct and contributory infringement on February 9, 2009. 74 FR 7263 (Feb. 13, 2009). Per its notice, the Commission also determined to grant Complainants’ motion to strike, and set a schedule for the filing of written submissions on the issues under review, including certain questions posed by the Commission, and on remedy, the public interest, and bonding. The parties have briefed, with initial and reply submissions, the issues under review and the issues of remedy, the public interest, and bonding. On review, the Commission has determined to (1) affirm the ALJ’s construction of ‘‘comb drive’’ (asserted claims 8, 13, 31–33), ‘‘comb drive means’’ (asserted claims 27, 41–42), ‘‘drive means’’ (asserted claims 24–25), and ‘‘mode selector switch * * * moveable between a manual operation position * * * and an automatic operation position’’ (asserted claim 33); (2) modify the ALJ’s construction of ‘‘discharge position adjacent the discharge end wall’’ (asserted claims 8, 13) to ‘‘not distant, nearby,’’ thereby deleting the synonyms ‘‘adjoining, continguous, abutting, and coterminus;’’ and (3) construe ‘‘coupled to’’ in the limitation ‘‘comb * * * coupled to the comb drive’’ (asserted claims 31–33) as ‘‘coupled or connected, directly or indirectly;’’ (4) affirm the ALJ’s finding of violation of § 337 as to Respondent Lucky Litter; (5) affirm the ALJ’s finding that the accused Lucky Litter products infringe claim 33 of the ‘847 patent; (6) affirm the ALJ’s finding of violation of § 337 as to Respondent OurPet’s; (7) affirm the ALJ’s finding that the accused OurPet’s products infringe claim 33 of the ‘847 patent; (8) affirm the ALJ’s finding that infringed claim 33 is not invalid due to anticipation or obviousness; and (9) affirm the ID on any other findings under review except insofar as they are inconsistent with the opinion of the Commission. The Commission determined that the appropriate form of relief in this investigation is (1) a limited exclusion order prohibiting the unlicensed entry of self-cleaning litter boxes and components thereof, including cartridges, covered by claim 33 of U.S. Patent No. Re. 36,847 that are manufactured abroad by or on behalf of, or imported by or on behalf of, Lucky Litter and OurPet’s; and (2) cease and desist orders against Lucky Litter and OurPet’s. The Commission further determined that the public interest factors enumerated in section 337(d)(1) (19 U.S.C. 1337(d)(1)) do not preclude issuance of the limited exclusion order. VerDate Nov<24>2008 18:51 Apr 10, 2009 Jkt 217001 Finally, the Commission determined that the bond under the limited exclusion order during the Presidential review period shall be in the amount of 100 percent of the entered value of the imported articles. The Commission’s orders were delivered to the President and the United States Trade Representative on the day of their issuance. The Commission has therefore terminated this investigation. 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 sections 210.16(c) and 210.41–.42, 210.50 of the Commission’s Rules of Practice and Procedure (19 CFR 210.16(c) and 210.41–.42, 210.50). Issued: April 8, 2009. By order of the Commission. Marilyn R. Abbott, Secretary to the Commission. [FR Doc.
