Abstract The purpose of the Rural Water Program is to provide assistance to small communities of 50,000 inhabitants or less, including tribes and tribal organizations, to plan the design and construction of projects to serve rural areas with industrial, municipal, and residential water. Specifically, the Bureau of Reclamation (Reclamation) is authorized to provide financial and technical assistance to conduct appraisal investigations and feasibility studies for rural water supply projects. Reclamation’s regulation, 43 CFR part 404, establishes criteria governing how the program will be implemented, including eligibility and prioritization criteria, and criteria to evaluate appraisal and feasibility studies. Entities interested in participating in the Rural Water Program are requested to submit information regarding proposed appraisal investigation and feasibility studies, to allow Reclamation to evaluate and prioritize requests for financial or technical assistance under the program. Reclamation will apply the program criteria to the information provided to determine whether the entity seeking assistance is eligible, whether the project is eligible for assistance, and to what extent the project meets Reclamation’s prioritization criteria. Requests for assistance under the Rural Water Program will be made on a voluntary basis. There is no form associated with this information collection. II. Data OMB Control Number: 1006–0029.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Commission instituted this investigation on November 8, 2010, based on a complaint filed by Motorola Mobility, Inc. of Libertyville, Illinois (‘‘Motorola’’). 75 FR 68619–20 (Nov. 8, 2010). The complaint alleges violations of section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended, 19 U.S.C. 1337 (‘‘section 337’’), in the importation into the United States, the sale for importation, and the sale within the United States after importation of certain wireless communication devices, portable music and data processing devices, computers and components thereof by reason of infringement of certain claims of the ’333 patent, the ’862 patent, the ’697 patent, U.S. Patent No. 5,359,317 (‘‘the ’317 patent’’), the ’223 patent, and U.S. Patent No. 7,751,826 (‘‘the ’826 patent’’). The complaint further alleges the existence of a domestic industry. The Commission’s notice of investigation named Apple Inc. of Cupertino, California (‘‘Apple’’) as respondent. The Office of Unfair Import Investigation (‘‘OUII’’) was named as a participating party, however, on July 29, 2011, OUII withdrew from further participation in SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00084 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 52759 the investigation. See Commission Investigative Staff’s Notice of Nonparticipation (July 29, 2011). The Commission later partially terminated the investigation as to the ’317 patent and the ’826 patent. Notice (June 28, 2011); Notice (Jan 27, 2012). On April 24, 2012, the ALJ issued his final ID, finding a violation of section 337 as to the ’697 patent and finding no violation as to the ’223, ’333, and ’697 patents. On May 9, 2012, the ALJ issued his recommended determination on remedy and bonding. In his final ID, the ALJ found that the products accused of infringing the ’697 patent literally infringe claims 1–4 of that patent, and that Apple induces others to infringe the asserted claims of the ’697 patent. The ALJ also found that the asserted claims of the ’697 patent are not invalid as anticipated under 35 U.S.C. 102, as obvious under 35 U.S.C. 103, or for failure to satisfy the written description requirement or the best mode requirement of 35 U.S.C. 112. The ALJ also found that the ’697 patent is not unenforceable for unclean hands. The ALJ further found that Motorola has satisfied the domestic industry requirement for the ’697 patent. The ALJ found that the products accused of infringing the ’223 patent literally infringe the asserted claim of that patent and that Apple induces others to infringe the claim 1 of the ’223 patent. The ALJ further found, however, that the asserted claim of the ’223 patent is invalid as anticipated under 35 U.S.C. 102. The ALJ also found that Motorola has satisfied the domestic industry requirement for the ’223 patent. The ALJ found that the products accused of infringing the ’333 patent do not literally infringe claim 12 of that patent. The ALJ also found that the asserted claim of the ’333 patent is not invalid as anticipated under 35 U.S.C. 102 or for obviousness under 35 U.S.C. 103. The ALJ further found that Motorola has not satisfied the domestic industry requirement for the ’333 patent. The ALJ found that claim 1 of the ’862 patent is invalid as indefinite under 35 U.S.C. 112, ¶ 2 and, therefore, that the products accused of infringing the ’862 patent do not literally infringe the asserted claim of that patent and that Motorola has not satisfied the domestic industry requirement for the ’862 patent. On May 7, 2012, Motorola filed a joint petition for review and contingent petition for review of certain aspects of the final ID’s findings concerning claim construction, infringement, validity, and domestic industry. Also on May 7, 2012, Apple filed a joint petition for review and contingent petition for review of certain aspects of the final ID’s findings E:\FR\FM\30AUN1.SGM 30AUN1
