SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: We announce the availability of the proposed HCP, accompanying incidental take permit (ITP) application, and an environmental assessment (EA), which analyze the take of the redcockaded woodpecker incidental to activities conducted by the Applicant. The Applicant requests a 30-year ITP under section 10(a)(1)(B) of the Act (16 U.S.C. 1531 et seq.), as amended. The Applicant’s HCP describes the mitigation and minimization measures proposed to address the impacts to the species. We specifically request information, views, and opinions from the public via this notice on our proposed Federal action, including identification of any other aspects of the human environment not already identified in the EA mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:56 Jun 07, 2013 Jkt 229001 pursuant to National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) regulations in the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) at 40 CFR 1506.6. Further, we specifically solicit information regarding the adequacy of the HCP per 50 CFR parts 13 and 17. The EA assesses the likely environmental impacts associated with the implementation of the activities, including the environmental consequences of the no-action alternative and the proposed action. The proposed action alternative is issuance of the ITP and implementation of the HCP as submitted by the Applicant. The HCP covers activities associated with the translocation of the red-cockaded woodpecker into a proposed conservation area on the Applicant’s lands in Calhoun County, Arkansas; timber harvesting activities on Potlatch lands in Arkansas; and provisioning and maintenance activities associated with red-cockaded woodpecker groups within the conservation area. Avoidance, minimization, and mitigation measures include consolidation of red-cockaded woodpecker groups into the conservation area, land management to maintain habitat, and management of additional red-cockaded woodpecker groups that may be available to use for mitigation by landowners besides the Applicant.

Six of these groups are currently located outside the proposed conservation area, which will encompass 13,122 acres of timberland and be the focus of red-cockaded woodpecker conservation activities. The red-cockaded woodpecker historically ranged throughout south Arkansas, but is now restricted to Felsenthal National Wildlife Refuge (NWR), Ouachita National Forest, Warren Prairie Natural Area, one privately-owned conservation area managed under a separate HCP adjacent to Felsenthal NWR, Potlatch lands, and up to eight isolated groups on other private lands. Next Steps We will evaluate the ITP application, including the HCP and any comments we receive, to determine whether the application meets the requirements of section 10(a)(1)(B) of the Act. We will also evaluate whether issuance of a section 10(a)(1)(B) ITP complies with section 7 of the Act by conducting an intra-Service section 7 consultation. We will use the results of this consultation, in combination with the above findings, in our final analysis to determine whether or not to issue the ITP. If we determine that the requirements are met, we will issue the ITP for the incidental take of red-cockaded woodpecker.

The complaint alleges violations of section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (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 electronic devices, including wireless communication devices, mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:56 Jun 07, 2013 Jkt 229001 portable music and data processing devices, and tablet computers, by reason of infringement of various U.S. patents. The notice of investigation names Apple as the only respondent. The patents remaining in the investigation are the ’348, ’644, ’114, and ’980 patents. The complaint also alleged infringement of U.S. Patent No. 6,879,843, but the investigation with respect to that patent was previously terminated based on withdrawn allegations. On September 14, 2012, the presiding administrative law judge (‘‘ALJ’’) issued his final initial determination (‘‘ID’’) finding no violation of section 337 based on the four patents remaining at issue. The ALJ determined that the ’348, ’644, and ’980 patents are valid but not infringed and that the ’114 patent is both invalid and not infringed. The ALJ further determined that the economic prong of the domestic industry requirement was satisfied with respect to the remaining asserted patents, but that the technical prong was not satisfied for any of those patents. On October 1, 2012, complainant Samsung and the Commission investigative attorney (‘‘IA’’) filed petitions for review of the ID, while Apple filed a contingent petition for review. On November 19, 2012, the Commission determined to review the ID in its entirety. 77 FR 70464 (Nov. 26, 2012). The Commission issued a public notice requesting written submissions from the parties and the public on various topics, many of which concerned the Commission’s authority to issue a remedy for the importation of articles that infringe patents that the patent owner has stated it will license on fair, reasonable, and nondiscriminatory (‘‘FRAND’’) terms. Other topics concerned patent issues specific to this investigation. The Commission received written submissions from Samsung, Apple, and the IA addressing all of the Commission’s questions. In response to the FRAND-related topics posed to the public, the Commission received responses from the following: Association for Competitive Technology; Business Software Alliance; Ericsson Inc.; GTW Associates; Hewlett Packard Company; Innovation Alliance; Intel Corporation; Motorola Mobility LLC; Qualcomm Incorporated; Research In Motion Corporation; and Sprint Spectrum, L.P. On March 13, 2013, the Commission issued another public notice requesting written submissions from the parties and the public on various additional topics, including some FRAND-related topics. 78 FR 16865 (March 19, 2013). The Commission received written PO 00000 Frm 00036 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 submissions from Samsung, Apple, and the IA addressing all of the Commission’s questions. In response to the FRAND-related topics posed to the public, the Commission received responses from the following: Association for Competitive Technology; Business Software Alliance; Cisco Systems, Inc.; Hewlett Packard Company; Innovation Alliance; Micron Technology, Inc.; and Retail Industry Leaders Association. Having examined the record of this investigation, including the ALJ’s final ID and submissions from the parties and from the public, the Commission has determined that Samsung has proven a violation of section 337 based on articles that infringe claims 75–76 and 82–84 of the ’348 patent. The Commission has determined to modify the ALJ’s construction of certain terms in the asserted claims of the ’348 patent, including ‘‘controller,’’ ‘‘10 bit TFCI information,’’ and ‘‘puncturing.’’ Under the modified constructions, the Commission has determined that Samsung has proven that the accused iPhone 4 (AT&T models); iPhone 3GS (AT&T models); iPhone 3 (AT&T models); iPad 3G (AT&T models); and iPad 2 3G (AT&T models) infringe the asserted claims of the ’348 patent. The Commission has further determined that the properly construed claims have not been proven by Apple to be invalid and that Samsung has proven that a domestic industry exists in the United States with respect to the ’348 patent. The Commission has determined that Apple failed to prove an affirmative defense based on Samsung’s FRAND declarations. The Commission has determined that Samsung has not proven a violation based on alleged infringement of the ’644, ’980, and ’114 patents. With some modifications to the ALJ’s analysis, the Commission has determined that the asserted claims of the ’644 and ’980 patents are valid but not infringed and that the asserted claims of the ’114 patent are not infringed and are invalid. The Commission has further determined that Samsung did not prove a domestic industry exists in the United States relating to articles protected by the ’644, ’980, and ’114 patents. The Commission has determined that the appropriate remedy is a limited exclusion order and a cease and desist order prohibiting Apple from importing into the United States or selling or distributing within the United States wireless communication devices, portable music and data processing devices, and tablet computers that infringe claims 75–76 and 82–84 of the ’348 patent. The Commission has E:\FR\FM\10JNN1.SGM 10JNN1 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 111 / Monday, June 10, 2013 / Notices determined that the public interest factors enumerated in section 337(d)(1) and (f)(1) do not preclude issuance of the limited exclusion order and cease and desist order. The Commission has determined that Samsung’s FRAND declarations do not preclude that remedy. Finally, the Commission has determined that a bond in the amount of zero percent of the entered value is required to permit temporary importation during the period of Presidential review (19 U.S.C. 1337(j)) of wireless communication devices, portable music and data processing devices, and tablet computers that are subject to the order. The Commission’s order and opinion were delivered to the President and to the United States Trade Representative on the day of their issuance.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Commission instituted this investigation 
on August 1, 2011, based on a complaint filed by Samsung Electronics 
Co., Ltd. of Korea and Samsung Telecommunications America, LLC of 
Richardson, Texas (collectively, ``Samsung''). 76 FR 45860 (Aug. 1, 
2011). The complaint alleges violations of section 337 of the Tariff 
Act of 1930, as amended (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 electronic devices, including 
wireless communication devices, portable music and data processing 
devices, and tablet computers, by reason of infringement of various 
U.S. patents. The notice of investigation names Apple as the only 
respondent. The patents remaining in the investigation are the '348, 
'644, '114, and '980 patents. The complaint also alleged infringement 
of U.S. Patent No. 6,879,843, but the investigation with respect to 
that patent was previously terminated based on withdrawn allegations.
    On September 14, 2012, the presiding administrative law judge 
(``ALJ'') issued his final initial determination (``ID'') finding no 
violation of section 337 based on the four patents remaining at issue. 
The ALJ determined that the '348, '644, and '980 patents are valid but 
not infringed and that the '114 patent is both invalid and not 
infringed. The ALJ further determined that the economic prong of the 
domestic industry requirement was satisfied with respect to the 
remaining asserted patents, but that the technical prong was not 
satisfied for any of those patents.
    On October 1, 2012, complainant Samsung and the Commission 
investigative attorney (``IA'') filed petitions for review of the ID, 
while Apple filed a contingent petition for review.
    On November 19, 2012, the Commission determined to review the ID in 
its entirety. 77 FR 70464 (Nov. 26, 2012). The Commission issued a 
public notice requesting written submissions from the parties and the 
public on various topics, many of which concerned the Commission's 
authority to issue a remedy for the importation of articles that 
infringe patents that the patent owner has stated it will license on 
fair, reasonable, and non-discriminatory (``FRAND'') terms. Other 
topics concerned patent issues specific to this investigation. The 
Commission received written submissions from Samsung, Apple, and the IA 
addressing all of the Commission's questions. In response to the FRAND-
related topics posed to the public, the Commission received responses 
from the following: Association for Competitive Technology; Business 
Software Alliance; Ericsson Inc.; GTW Associates; Hewlett Packard 
Company; Innovation Alliance; Intel Corporation; Motorola Mobility LLC; 
Qualcomm Incorporated; Research In Motion Corporation; and Sprint 
Spectrum, L.P.
    On March 13, 2013, the Commission issued another public notice 
requesting written submissions from the parties and the public on 
various additional topics, including some FRAND-related topics. 78 FR 
16865 (March 19, 2013). The Commission received written submissions 
from Samsung, Apple, and the IA addressing all of the Commission's 
questions. In response to the FRAND-related topics posed to the public, 
the Commission received responses from the following: Association for 
Competitive Technology; Business Software Alliance; Cisco Systems, 
Inc.; Hewlett Packard Company; Innovation Alliance; Micron Technology, 
Inc.; and Retail Industry Leaders Association.
    Having examined the record of this investigation, including the 
ALJ's final ID and submissions from the parties and from the public, 
the Commission has determined that Samsung has proven a violation of 
section 337 based on articles that infringe claims 75-76 and 82-84 of 
the '348 patent. The Commission has determined to modify the ALJ's 
construction of certain terms in the asserted claims of the '348 
patent, including ``controller,'' ``10 bit TFCI information,'' and 
``puncturing.'' Under the modified constructions, the Commission has 
determined that Samsung has proven that the accused iPhone 4 (AT&T 
models); iPhone 3GS (AT&T models); iPhone 3 (AT&T models); iPad 3G 
(AT&T models); and iPad 2 3G (AT&T models) infringe the asserted claims 
of the '348 patent. The Commission has further determined that the 
properly construed claims have not been proven by Apple to be invalid 
and that Samsung has proven that a domestic industry exists in the 
United States with respect to the '348 patent. The Commission has 
determined that Apple failed to prove an affirmative defense based on 
Samsung's FRAND declarations.
    The Commission has determined that Samsung has not proven a 
violation based on alleged infringement of the '644, '980, and '114 
patents. With some modifications to the ALJ's analysis, the Commission 
has determined that the asserted claims of the '644 and '980 patents 
are valid but not infringed and that the asserted claims of the '114 
patent are not infringed and are invalid. The Commission has further 
determined that Samsung did not prove a domestic industry exists in the 
United States relating to articles protected by the '644, '980, and 
'114 patents.
    The Commission has determined that the appropriate remedy is a 
limited exclusion order and a cease and desist order prohibiting Apple 
from importing into the United States or selling or distributing within 
the United States wireless communication devices, portable music and 
data processing devices, and tablet computers that infringe claims 75-
76 and 82-84 of the '348 patent. The Commission has

[[Page 34671]]

determined that the public interest factors enumerated in section 
337(d)(1) and (f)(1) do not preclude issuance of the limited exclusion 
order and cease and desist order. The Commission has determined that 
Samsung's FRAND declarations do not preclude that remedy.
    Finally, the Commission has determined that a bond in the amount of 
zero percent of the entered value is required to permit temporary 
importation during the period of Presidential review (19 U.S.C. 
1337(j)) of wireless communication devices, portable music and data 
processing devices, and tablet computers that are subject to the order. 
The Commission's order and opinion were delivered to the President and 
to the United States Trade Representative on the day of their issuance.
    Commissioner Pinkert dissents on public interest grounds from the 
determination to issue an exclusion order and cease and desist order.
    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 Part 210 of the Commission's Rules of Practice and Procedure (19 CFR 
Part 210).
