SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Commission instituted this investigation on October 12, 2010, based on a complaint filed by Lexmark E:\FR\FM\15JYN1.SGM 15JYN1 mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 136 / Friday, July 15, 2011 / Notices International, Inc. of Lexington, Kentucky (‘‘Lexmark’’). 75 FR. 62564–65 (Oct. 12, 2010).

Co., Ltd. of Rodrigo Rodrigues, Macao. The Commission determined not to review an ID terminating the investigation as to Print-Rite based on a settlement agreement. Commission Notice (Jan. 10, 2011). The Commission determined to review and affirm several IDs (Order Nos. 15–19) finding several respondents in default under Commission Rules 210.16(a)(2) and VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:55 Jul 14, 2011 Jkt 223001 (b)(2) based on those respondents’ elections to default. Commission Notice (Mar. 3, 2011) (Order Nos. 15–16); Commission Notice (Mar. 11, 2011) (Order Nos. 17–18); Commission Notice (Mar. 11, 2011) (Order No. 19). The Commission determined not to review several other IDs (Order Nos. 23–24) finding the remaining respondents in default. Commission Notice (Mar. 23, 2011) (Order No. 23); and Commission Notice (April 6, 2011) (Order No. 24). On April 25, 2011, Lexmark filed a motion pursuant to Commission Rule 210.18 (19 CFR 210.18) for summary determination of violation of Section 337 and requesting issuance of a general exclusion order and cease and desist orders against defaulting respondents. On May 5, 2011, the Commission investigative attorney filed a response supporting the motion, on the condition that Lexmark submit (1) A declaration from its expert, Charles Reinholtz, averring that the statements in his expert report are true and correct, and (2) a declaration from Andrew Gardner that the accused products do not have any substantial non-infringing uses. Lexmark filed the submissions per the IA’s request. On June 1, 2011, the ALJ issued the subject ID granting Lexmark’s motion for summary determination of violation of Section 337. No petitions for review of the ID were filed. The ID also contained the ALJ’s recommended determination of remedy and bonding. Specifically, the ALJ recommended issuance of a general exclusion order and cease and desist orders against the defaulting respondents. The ALJ further recommended that the Commission set a 100% bond during the period of Presidential review. Having examined the record of this investigation, including the ALJ’s final ID, the Commission has determined not to review the ID. In connection with the final disposition of this investigation, the Commission may (1) issue an order that could result in the exclusion of the subject articles from entry into the United States, and/or (2) issue one or more cease and desist orders that could result in the respondent(s) being required to cease and desist from engaging in unfair acts in the importation and sale of such articles. Accordingly, the Commission is interested in receiving written submissions that address the form of remedy, if any, that should be ordered. If a party seeks exclusion of an article from entry into the United States for purposes other than entry for consumption, the party should so indicate and provide information PO 00000 Frm 00071 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 41823 establishing that activities involving other types of entry either are adversely affecting it or likely to do so. For background, see In the Matter of Certain Devices for Connecting Computers via Telephone Lines, Inv. No. 337–TA–360, USITC Pub. No. 2843 (December 1994) (Commission Opinion). If the Commission contemplates some form of remedy, it must consider the effects of that remedy upon the public interest. The factors the Commission will consider include the effect that an exclusion order and/or cease and desist orders would have on (1) The public health and welfare, (2) competitive conditions in the U.S. economy, (3) U.S. production of articles that are like or directly competitive with those that are subject to investigation, and (4) U.S. consumers. The Commission is therefore interested in receiving written submissions that address the aforementioned public interest factors in the context of this investigation. If the Commission orders some form of remedy, the U.S. Trade Representative, as delegated by the President, has 60 days to approve or disapprove the Commission’s action. See Presidential Memorandum of July 21, 2005, 70 FR 43251 (July 26, 2005). During this period, the subject articles would be entitled to enter the United States under bond, in an amount determined by the Commission and prescribed by the Secretary of the Treasury. The Commission is therefore interested in receiving submissions concerning the amount of the bond that should be imposed if a remedy is ordered. Written Submissions: Parties to the investigation, interested government agencies, and any other interested parties are encouraged to file written submissions on the issues of remedy, the public interest, and bonding. Such submissions should address the recommended determination by the ALJ on remedy and bonding. Complainants and the IA are also requested to submit proposed remedial orders for the Commission’s consideration. Complainants are also requested to state the dates that the patents expire and the HTSUS numbers under which the accused products are imported. The written submissions and proposed remedial orders must be filed no later than close of business on Monday, August 1, 2011. Reply submissions must be filed no later than the close of business on Monday, August 8, 2011. No further submissions on these issues will be permitted unless otherwise ordered by the Commission. Persons filing written submissions must file the original document and 12 E:\FR\FM\15JYN1.SGM 15JYN1 41824 Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 136 / Friday, July 15, 2011 / Notices true copies thereof on or before the deadlines stated above with the Office of the Secretary. Any person desiring to submit a document to the Commission in confidence must request confidential treatment unless the information has already been granted such treatment during the proceedings. All such requests should be directed to the Secretary of the Commission and must include a full statement of the reasons why the Commission should grant such treatment. See 19 C.F.R. 210.6. Documents for which confidential treatment by the Commission is sought will be treated accordingly. All nonconfidential written submissions will be available for public inspection at the Office of the Secretary. 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 sections 210.42–46 and 210.50 of the Commission’s Rules of Practice and Procedure (19 CFR 210.42–210.46 and 210.50).

to review and affirm several IDs (Order Nos. 15-19) finding several

based on those respondents' elections to default. Commission Notice 
(Mar. 3, 2011) (Order Nos. 15-16); Commission Notice (Mar. 11, 2011) 
(Order Nos. 17-18); Commission Notice (Mar. 11, 2011) (Order No. 19).

    On April 25, 2011, Lexmark filed a motion pursuant to Commission 
Rule 210.18 (19 CFR 210.18) for summary determination of violation of 
Section 337 and requesting issuance of a general exclusion order and 
cease and desist orders against defaulting respondents. On May 5, 2011, 
the Commission investigative attorney filed a response supporting the 
motion, on the condition that Lexmark submit (1) A declaration from its 
expert, Charles Reinholtz, averring that the statements in his expert 
report are true and correct, and (2) a declaration from Andrew Gardner 
that the accused products do not have any substantial non-infringing 
uses. Lexmark filed the submissions per the IA's request.
    On June 1, 2011, the ALJ issued the subject ID granting Lexmark's 
motion for summary determination of violation of Section 337. No 
petitions for review of the ID were filed. The ID also contained the 
ALJ's recommended determination of remedy and bonding. Specifically, 
the ALJ recommended issuance of a general exclusion order and cease and 
desist orders against the defaulting respondents. The ALJ further 
recommended that the Commission set a 100% bond during the period of 
Presidential review.

ALJ's final ID, the Commission has determined not to review the ID.
    In connection with the final disposition of this investigation, the 
Commission may (1) issue an order that could result in the exclusion of 
the subject articles from entry into the United States, and/or (2) 
issue one or more cease and desist orders that could result in the 
respondent(s) being required to cease and desist from engaging in 
unfair acts in the importation and sale of such articles. Accordingly, 
the Commission is interested in receiving written submissions that 
address the form of remedy, if any, that should be ordered. If a party 
seeks exclusion of an article from entry into the United States for 
purposes other than entry for consumption, the party should so indicate 
and provide information establishing that activities involving other 
types of entry either are adversely affecting it or likely to do so.

(December 1994) (Commission Opinion).
    If the Commission contemplates some form of remedy, it must 
consider the effects of that remedy upon the public interest. The 
factors the Commission will consider include the effect that an 
exclusion order and/or cease and desist orders would have on (1) The 
public health and welfare, (2) competitive conditions in the U.S. 
economy, (3) U.S. production of articles that are like or directly 
competitive with those that are subject to investigation, and (4) U.S. 
consumers. The Commission is therefore interested in receiving written 
submissions that address the aforementioned public interest factors in 
the context of this investigation.
    If the Commission orders some form of remedy, the U.S. Trade 
Representative, as delegated by the President, has 60 days to approve 
or disapprove the Commission's action. See Presidential Memorandum of 
July 21, 2005, 70 FR 43251 (July 26, 2005). During this period, the 
subject articles would be entitled to enter the United States under 
bond, in an amount determined by the Commission and prescribed by the 
Secretary of the Treasury. The Commission is therefore interested in 
receiving submissions concerning the amount of the bond that should be 
imposed if a remedy is ordered.
    Written Submissions: Parties to the investigation, interested 
government agencies, and any other interested parties are encouraged to 
file written submissions on the issues of remedy, the public interest, 
and bonding. Such submissions should address the recommended 
determination by the ALJ on remedy and bonding.
    Complainants and the IA are also requested to submit proposed 
remedial orders for the Commission's consideration. Complainants are 
also requested to state the dates that the patents expire and the HTSUS 
numbers under which the accused products are imported. The written 
submissions and proposed remedial orders must be filed no later than 
close of business on Monday, August 1, 2011. Reply submissions must be 
filed no later than the close of business on Monday, August 8, 2011. No 
further submissions on these issues will be permitted unless otherwise 
ordered by the Commission.
    Persons filing written submissions must file the original document 
and 12

true copies thereof on or before the deadlines stated above with the 
Office of the Secretary. Any person desiring to submit a document to 
the Commission in confidence must request confidential treatment unless 
the information has already been granted such treatment during the 
proceedings. All such requests should be directed to the Secretary of 
the Commission and must include a full statement of the reasons why the 
Commission should grant such treatment. See 19 C.F.R. 210.6. Documents 
for which confidential treatment by the Commission is sought will be 
treated accordingly. All nonconfidential written submissions will be 
available for public inspection at the Office of the Secretary.
    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 sections 210.42-46 and 210.50 of the Commission's Rules of Practice 
and Procedure (19 CFR 210.42-210.46 and 210.50).

    By order of the Commission.

    Issued: July 12, 2011.
James R. Holbein,
Secretary to the Commission.
