ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: Notice is hereby given that the U.S. International Trade Commission has determined to affirm, with modifications, the ALJ’s finding of no violation of Section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930, 19 U.S.C. 1337 (‘‘Section 337’’) in the above-referenced investigation. SUMMARY: Jia Chen, Office of the General Counsel, U.S. International Trade Commission, 500 E Street SW., Washington, DC 20436, telephone (202) 708–4737. Copies of non-confidential documents filed in connection with this investigation are or will be available for inspection during official business hours (8:45 a.m. to 5:15 p.m.) in the Office of the Secretary, U.S. International Trade Commission, 500 E Street SW., Washington, DC 20436, telephone (202) 205–2000. General information concerning the Commission may also be obtained by accessing its Internet server at http://www.usitc.gov. The public record for this investigation may be viewed on the Commission’s electronic docket (EDIS) at http:// edis.usitc.gov. Hearing-impaired persons are advised that information on this matter can be obtained by contacting the Commission’s TDD terminal on (202) 205–1810. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On April 27, 2011, the Commission instituted the subject investigation based on a complaint filed by Creative Kingdoms, LLC of Wakefield, Rhode Island and New Kingdoms, LLC of Nehalem, Oregon (collectively, ‘‘CK’’). 76 FR FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: PO 00000 Frm 00064 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 23624 (Apr. 27, 2011). The complaint alleged violations of Section 337 by reason of infringement of certain claims of U.S. Patent Nos. 7,500,917 (‘‘the ’917 patent’’), 7,896,742 (‘‘the ’742 patent’’), 7,850,527 (‘‘the ’527 patent’’), and 6,761,637 (the ’637 patent). The named respondents are Nintendo Co., Ltd., of Kyoto, Japan and Nintendo America, Inc. of Redmond, Washington (collectively, ‘‘Nintendo’’). The ’637 patent was subsequently terminated from the investigation. On August 31, 2012, the ALJ issued a final ID finding no violation of section 337 by Nintendo. The ALJ found that the accused products infringe sole asserted claim 24 of the ’742 patent, but that the claim is invalid for failing to satisfy the enablement requirement and the written description requirement under 35 U.S.C. 112. The ALJ found that no accused products infringe the asserted claims of the ’917 patent and the ’527 patent. The ALJ also found that the asserted claims of the ’917 and ’527 patents are invalid for failing to satisfy the enablement requirement and the written description requirement. The ALJ concluded that complainant has failed to show that a domestic industry exists in the United States that exploits the asserted patents as required by 19 U.S.C. 1337(a)(2). The ALJ did not make a finding regarding the technical prong of the domestic industry requirement with respect to the asserted patents. The ALJ also did not making a finding with respect to anticipation and obviousness of the asserted patents. On November 6, 2012, the Commission determined to review the following issues: (1) Claim construction of the limitation ‘‘toy wand’’ of the asserted claim of the ’917 patent; (2) non-infringement of the asserted claim of the ’917 patent; (3) infringement of the asserted claim of the ’742 patent; (4) validity of the asserted claims of the ’917 and ’742 patent under the enablement requirement; (5) validity of the asserted claims of the ’917 and ’742 patent under the written description requirement; and (6) whether the domestic industry requirement is met with respect to the ’917 and ’742 patents. On the same day, the Commission issued an opinion with respect to the proper claim construction of the term ‘‘toy wand’’ of the asserted claim of the ’917 patent. The Commission determined to remand this case to the ALJ to determine the following issues: (a) Direct infringement of the asserted claim of the ’917 patent in light of the proper construction of the term ‘‘wand’’ as set forth in the Commission opinion; (b) whether the E:\FR\FM\18SEN1.SGM 18SEN1
