of Long Beach, California (collectively, ``Pioneer''). 74 FR 66676 
(Dec. 16, 2009). The complaint 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 multimedia display and navigation devices 
and systems, components thereof, and products containing same by reason 
of infringement of various claims of United States Patent Nos. 
5,365,448 (``the '448 patent''), 5,424,951 (``the '951 patent''), and

ALJ found that the accused products do not infringe claims 1 and 2 of

of the '592 patent. The ALJ found that the '592 patent was not proven 
to be invalid and that Pioneer has established a domestic industry

determined to review the final ID in part. On April 18, 2011, the

    Having examined the record of this investigation, including the

terminated.
