VerDate Nov<24>2008 15:15 Apr 30, 2009 Jkt 217001 On February 21, 2008, the Commission voted to institute this investigation, based on a complaint filed by Whirlpool Patents Company of St. Joseph, Michigan; Whirlpool Manufacturing Corporation of St. Joseph, Michigan; Whirlpool Corporation of Benton Harbor, Michigan, and Maytag Corporation of Benton Harbor, Michigan (collectively, ‘‘Whirlpool’’). The complaint, as supplemented, alleges violations of section 337 based upon the importation into the United States, the sale for importation, and the sale within the United States after importation of certain refrigerators and components thereof that infringe certain claims of U.S. Patent Nos. 6,082,130 (‘‘the ‘130 patent); 6,810,680 (‘‘the ‘680 patent’’); 6,915,644 (‘‘the ‘644 patent’’); 6,971,730; and 7,240,980. Whirlpool named LG Electronics, Inc.; LG Electronics, USA, Inc.; and LG Electronics Monterrey Mexico, S.A., De, CV (collectively, ‘‘LG’’) as respondents. The complaint, as supplemented, further alleges that an industry in the United States exists as required by subsection (a)(2) of section 337 and requested that the Commission issue an exclusion order and cease and desist orders. On September 11, 2008, Whirlpool and LG filed a joint motion seeking termination of this investigation with respect to the ‘680 patent and the ‘644 patent on the basis of a settlement agreement. On September 25, 2008, the ALJ issued an ID, Order No. 10, terminating the investigation, in part, as to the ‘680 and ‘644 patents. No petitions for review were filed. On October 27, 2008, the Commission determined not to review Order No. 10. On October 17, 2008, Whirlpool filed a motion for summary determination that it had satisfied the importation requirement. On November 20, 2008, the ALJ issued the subject ID, Order No. 14, granting complainant’s motion for summary determination of importation. No petitions for review were filed. On December 15, 2008, the Commission issued notice that it had determined not to review Order No. 14. On July 24, 2008, Whirlpool filed a motion seeking leave to amend the complaint and notice of investigation to (1) remove references to patents that had been withdrawn from this investigation; (2) add a reference to a non-exclusive license that relates to two patents at issue; and (3) update the current state of the domestic industry. On November 25, 2008, the ALJ issued Order No. 15, in which he granted Whirlpool’s motion as to (1) and (3) above and denied it with respect to (2). No petitions for review were filed. The Commission determined SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: PO 00000 Frm 00072 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 20345 not to review the subject ID on December 15, 2008. On February 26, 2009, the ALJ issued a final ID, in which he found no violation of Section 337. On March 11, 2009, Whirlpool filed a petition for review, and LG filed a contingent petition for review. Whirlpool, LG and OUII filed responses. The Commission has determined to review the final ID and requests briefing by the parties to the investigation on the issue of claim construction. In particular, the Commission would like the parties to address: 1. Do the ordinary and customary meanings of the following terms differ from the meanings ascribed to them by the inventors’ testimony: ‘‘freezer compartment,’’ ‘‘disposed within,’’ ‘‘mounted on,’’ ‘‘having an access opening and a closure member for closing the access opening,’’ and ‘‘ice storage bin having a bottom opening.’’ Please discuss with reference to dictionary definitions and expert testimony. 2. Are the phrases ‘‘mounted on’’ and ‘‘disposed within’’ mutually exclusive in the context of claim 1 of the ‘130 patent? Are either or both of these terms synonymous with ‘‘installed’’? 3. How does the prosecution history inform the claim construction, in terms of disclaimer and interpretation? 4. Would one of ordinary skill in the art understand a space defined by a cabinet having an access opening but not having a closure member to mean a ‘‘freezer compartment,’’ given that temperatures within such a compartment cannot be reduced to freezing? 5. In construing claim 1, the parties dispute whether the ‘‘closure member’’ is part of the freezer compartment. What conclusions can be drawn from the term ‘‘freezer compartment closure member’’ appearing in dependent claim 9? What conclusions, if any, can be drawn from a comparison of claim 1 and independent claim 10, the latter clearly identifying the closure member as part of the refrigerator. 6. To what extent should the Commission consider inventor testimony when construing the claims? See Hoechst Celanese Corp. v. BP Chems. Ltd., 78 F.3d 1575, 1580 (‘‘Markman requires us to give no deference to the testimony of the inventor about the meaning of the claims.’’). 7. For parties proposing additional or different meanings on claim construction, do these point to a different result for infringement, validity, or domestic industry? Please explain with regard to each relevant E:\FR\FM\01MYN1.SGM 01MYN1

    Background. On June 3, 2004, the Department of Commerce issued an 
antidumping duty order on imports of certain color television receivers 
from China (69 FR 31347), as amended (69 FR 35583, June 25, 2004). The 
Commission is conducting a review to determine whether revocation of 
the order would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of 
material injury to the

[[Page 20343]]

domestic industry within a reasonably foreseeable time. It will assess 
the adequacy of interested party responses to this notice of 
institution to determine whether to conduct a full review or an 
expedited review. The Commission's determination in any expedited 
review will be based on the facts available, which may include 
information provided in response to this notice.
    Definitions. The following definitions apply to this review:
    (1) Subject Merchandise is the class or kind of merchandise that is 
within the scope of the five-year review, as defined by the Department 
of Commerce.
    (2) The Subject Country in this review is China.
    (3) The Domestic Like Product is the domestically produced product 
or products which are like, or in the absence of like, most similar in 
characteristics and uses with, the Subject Merchandise. In its original 
determination, the Commission defined a single Domestic Like Product 
encompassing domestically produced color television receivers of the 
type described in Commerce's scope definition.
    (4) The Domestic Industry is the U.S. producers as a whole of the 
Domestic Like Product, or those producers whose collective output of 
the Domestic Like Product constitutes a major proportion of the total 
domestic production of the product. In its original determination, the 
Commission defined a single Domestic Industry as all U.S. producers of 
color television receivers.
    (5) The Order Date is the date that the antidumping duty order 
under review became effective. In this review, the Order Date is June 
3, 2004.
    (6) An Importer is any person or firm engaged, either directly or 
through a parent company or subsidiary, in importing the Subject 
Merchandise into the United States from a foreign manufacturer or 
through its selling agent.
    Participation in the review and public service list. Persons, 
including industrial users of the Subject Merchandise and, if the 
merchandise is sold at the retail level, representative consumer 
organizations, wishing to participate in the review as parties must 
file an entry of appearance with the Secretary to the Commission, as 
provided in section 201.11(b)(4) of the Commission's rules, no later 
than 21 days after publication of this notice in the Federal Register. 
The Secretary will maintain a public service list containing the names 
and addresses of all persons, or their representatives, who are parties 
to the review.
    Former Commission employees who are seeking to appear in Commission 
five-year reviews are advised that they may appear in a review even if 
they participated personally and substantially in the corresponding 
underlying original investigation. The Commission's designated agency 
ethics official recently has advised that a five-year review is no 
longer considered the ``same particular matter'' as the corresponding 
underlying original investigation for purposes of 18 U.S.C. 207, the 
post employment statute for Federal employees, and Commission rule 
201.15(b) (19 CFR 201.15(b)), 73 FR 24609 (May 5, 2008). This advice 
was developed in consultation with the Office of Government Ethics. 
Consequently, former employees are no longer required to seek 
Commission approval to appear in a review under Commission rule 19 CFR 
201.15, even if the corresponding underlying original investigation was 
pending when they were Commission employees. For further ethics advice 
on this matter, contact Carol McCue Verratti, Deputy Agency Ethics 
Official, at 202-205-3088.
    Limited disclosure of business proprietary information (BPI) under 
an administrative protective order (APO) and APO service list. Pursuant 
to section 207.7(a) of the Commission's rules, the Secretary will make 
BPI submitted in this review available to authorized applicants under 
the APO issued in the review, provided that the application is made no 
later than 21 days after publication of this notice in the Federal 
Register. Authorized applicants must represent interested parties, as 
defined in 19 U.S.C. 1677(9), who are parties to the review. A separate 
service list will be maintained by the Secretary for those parties 
authorized to receive BPI under the APO.
    Certification. Pursuant to section 207.3 of the Commission's rules, 
any person submitting information to the Commission in connection with 
this review must certify that the information is accurate and complete 
to the best of the submitter's knowledge. In making the certification, 
the submitter will be deemed to consent, unless otherwise specified, 
for the Commission, its employees, and contract personnel to use the 
information provided in any other reviews or investigations of the same 
or comparable products which the Commission conducts under Title VII of 
the Act, or in internal audits and investigations relating to the 
programs and operations of the Commission pursuant to 5 U.S.C. Appendix 
3.
    Written submissions. Pursuant to section 207.61 of the Commission's 
rules, each interested party response to this notice must provide the 
information specified below. The deadline for filing such responses is 
June 1, 2009. Pursuant to section 207.62(b) of the Commission's rules, 
eligible parties (as specified in Commission rule 207.62(b)(1)) may 
also file comments concerning the adequacy of responses to the notice 
of institution and whether the Commission should conduct an expedited 
or full review. The deadline for filing such comments is July 14, 2009. 
All written submissions must conform with the provisions of sections 
201.8 and 207.3 of the Commission's rules and any submissions that 
contain BPI must also conform with the requirements of sections 201.6 
and 207.7 of the Commission's rules. The Commission's rules do not 
authorize filing of submissions with the Secretary by facsimile or 
electronic means, except to the extent permitted by section 201.8 of 
the Commission's rules, as amended, 67 FR 68036 (November 8, 2002). 
Also, in accordance with sections 201.16(c) and 207.3 of the 
Commission's rules, each document filed by a party to the review must 
be served on all other parties to the review (as identified by either 
the public or APO service list as appropriate), and a certificate of 
service must accompany the document (if you are not a party to the 
review you do not need to serve your response).
    Inability to provide requested information. Pursuant to section 
207.61(c) of the Commission's rules, any interested party that cannot 
furnish the information requested by this notice in the requested form 
and manner shall notify the Commission at the earliest possible time, 
provide a full explanation of why it cannot provide the requested 
information, and indicate alternative forms in which it can provide 
equivalent information. If an interested party does not provide this 
notification (or the Commission finds the explanation provided in the 
notification inadequate) and fails to provide a complete response to 
this notice, the Commission may take an adverse inference against the 
party pursuant to section 776(b) of the Act in making its determination 
in the review.
