(b) The respondent is the following entity alleged to be in violation of section 337, and is the party upon which the complaint is to be served: Desire2Learn Incorporated, 305 King Street West, Suite 200, Kitchener, Ontario, Canada N2G 1B9. (c) The Commission investigative attorney, party to this investigation, is Mareesa A. Frederick, Esq., Office of Unfair Import Investigations, U.S. International Trade Commission, 500 E Street, SW., Room 401, Washington, DC 20436; and (3) For the investigation so instituted, Paul J. Luckern, Chief Administrative Law Judge, U.S. International Trade Commission, shall designate the presiding Administrative Law Judge. The Commission notes that the asserted patent is currently involved in a reexamination proceeding at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office and an appellate proceeding before the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit. In instituting this investigation the Commission has not made any determination as to whether a stay is warranted. However, the presiding administrative law judge may wish to consider whether a stay is warranted at an early date in this proceeding. Any such decision regarding the motion to stay the investigation should be issued in the form of an initial determination (ID). The ID will become the Commission’s final determination 45 days after the date of service of the ID unless the Commission determines to 1 The Commission has determined not to institute an investigation with respect to claims 1–35 as these claims are the subject of a valid and final judgment of invalidity issued by the district court for the Eastern District of Texas. VerDate Nov<24>2008 14:45 Jun 08, 2009 Jkt 217001 review the ID. Any petitions for review of the ID must be filed within ten (10) days after service thereof. Any review will be conducted in accordance with Commission Rules 210.43, 210.44 and 210.45, 19 CFR 210.43, 210.44, and 210.45. The instant complaint also raises questions relating to, inter alia, (1) the scope of coverage under Section 337, and (2) possible claim preclusion with respect to claims 36–44 of the asserted ‘138 patent in light of prior district court contempt proceeding and a pending appeal before the Federal Circuit. As with other investigations commenced pursuant to Section 337, the institution of the requested investigation by the Commission does not constitute a determination on the merits of these or other issues that may arise in the investigation. Responses to the complaint and the notice of investigation must be submitted by the named respondent in accordance with section 210.13 of the Commission’s Rules of Practice and Procedure, 19 CFR 210.13. Pursuant to 19 CFR 201.16(d) and 210.13(a), such responses will be considered by the Commission if received not later than 20 days after the date of service by the Commission of the complaint and the notice of investigation. Extensions of time for submitting a response to the complaint and the notice of investigation will not be granted unless good cause therefor is shown. Failure of a respondent to file a timely response to each allegation in the complaint and in this notice may be deemed to constitute a waiver of the right to appear and contest the allegations of the complaint and this notice, and to authorize the administrative law judge and the Commission, without further notice to the respondent, to find the facts to be as alleged in the complaint and this notice and to enter an initial determination and a final determination containing such findings, and may result in the issuance of an exclusion order or a cease and desist order or both directed against the respondent. By order of the Commission. Issued: June 3, 2009. Marilyn R. Abbott, Secretary to the Commission. [FR Doc.
