Download as PDF tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 105 / Friday, May 31, 2013 / Notices section 337. The ALJ concluded that an industry exists within the United States that practices the ’896, ’094, ’571, ’596 and ’712 patents as required by 19 U.S.C. 1337(a)(2). On May 7, 2012, Microsoft filed a petition for review of the ID. That same day, Motorola filed a petition and contingent petition for review. On May 15, 2012, the parties filed responses to the various petitions and contingent petition for review. On June 22, 2012, Microsoft filed a motion for partial termination of the investigation. Specifically, Microsoft moved for termination of the ’094 and ’596 patents from the investigation based on facts alleged in the motion. On June 29, 2012, the Commission determined to review the final ID in its entirety and remanded the investigation to the ALJ to apply the Commission’s opinion in Certain Electronic Devices with Image Processing Systems, Components Thereof, and Associated Software, Inv. No. 337–TA–724, Comm’n Op. (Dec. 21, 2011) and rule on Microsoft’s motion for partial termination of the investigation filed June 22, 2012. 77 FR 40082 (July 6, 2012). On November 6, 2012, the ALJ issued an ID (Order No. 48) granting Motorola’s motion to terminate the investigation as to the ’712 and ’571 patents. On January 11, 2013, the ALJ issued an ID (Order No. 52) granting Motorola’s motion to terminate the investigation as to the ’596 and ’094 patents. The Commission determined not to review those orders. Thus, only the ’896 patent remains in this investigation. On March 22, 2013, the ALJ issued his RID, finding no violation of section 337 with respect to the asserted claims of the ’896 patent. On April 8, 2013, Motorola filed a petition for review of the RID, challenging the ALJ’s finding that Microsoft is not liable for indirectly infringing the asserted claims of the ’896 patent. That same day, Microsoft filed a contingent petition for review. In its contingent petition for review, Microsoft incorporates its petition for review of the original ID with respect to the ’896 patent. On April 16, 2013, the parties filed responses to the petitions for review. Having examined the record of this investigation, including the ALJ’s final ID and RID, the petitions for review, and the responses thereto, the Commission has determined not to review the RID. The Commission affirms the ID issued on April 23, 2012, with respect to the ’896 patent as modified by the RID. In that connection, the Commission adopts the ALJ’s findings in the original ID that VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:40 May 30, 2013 Jkt 229001 (1) Motorola waived its indirect infringement argument and (2) Motorola failed to establish indirect infringement on the merits. ID at 67–68. The Commission also adopts the ALJ’s amplified findings in the RID that Motorola failed to establish indirect infringement on the merits during the remand proceeding. Thus there is no violation of section 337 with respect to the ’896 patent. The investigation is terminated. 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 210.42–46 and 210.50). Issued: May 23, 2013. By order of the Commission. William R. Bishop, Supervisory Hearings and Information Officer.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Abstract This collection of information supports both the White House initiative to create opportunities to advance science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education, and the President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology (PCAST) Engage to Excel goals to improve STEM education during the first two years of college. The Department of Commerce estimates that STEM occupations will grow 1.7 times faster than non-STEM occupations between 2008–2018. As demographics in the U.S. continue to shift towards a more diverse populous, there is a need to attract underserved and underrepresented students to STEM degree fields. Traditionally, underrepresented groups in STEM include females, African-American, Hispanics, Native Americans, Pacific Islanders (natives of the Philippines, Guam, American Samoa, or Micronesia), and disabled students. The NASA Glenn Research Center (GRC) Shadowing and Exploring Project is a career exploration initiative targeting students in the 14–20 age group. It connects classroom training to tangible activities that enable practical application of STEM disciplines, and cultivates innovative thinking. The program is designed to increase awareness of STEM career paths and encourage both the pursuit and retention of STEM majors during the initial years of college. The program incorporates GRC scientists, engineers, technicians, and administrative professionals to serve as mentors to participating students. The NASA Glenn Research Center Shadowing and Exploring Project Participation is voluntary and registration is required to participate. E:\FR\FM\31MYN1.SGM 31MYN1
