SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Commission instituted this investigation on June 29, 2012, based on a complaint filed by Flashpoint Technology, Inc. (‘‘Flashpoint’’) of Peterborough, New Hampshire alleging violations of Section 337 in the importation into the United States, the sale for importation, and the sale within the United States after importation of certain electronic imaging devices by reason of infringement of certain claims of U.S. Patent Nos. 6,504,575 (‘‘the ’575 patent’’), 6,222,538 (‘‘the ’538 patent’’), tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: VerDate Mar<15>2010 18:12 Dec 20, 2013 Jkt 232001 6,400,471 (‘‘the ’471 patent’’), and 6,223,190 (‘‘the ’190 patent’’). The notice of investigation named the following respondents: HTC Corporation of Taoyuan, Taiwan and HTC America, Inc. of Bellevue, Washington (collectively, ‘‘HTC’’); Pantech Co., Ltd. of Seoul, Republic of Korea and Pantech Wireless, Inc. of Atlanta, Georgia (collectively, ‘‘Pantech’’); Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd. of Shenzhen, China; FutureWei Technologies, Inc. d/b/a Huawei Technologies (USA) of Plano, Texas (collectively ‘‘Huawei’’); ZTE Corporation of Shenzhen, China; and ZTE (USA) Inc. of Richardson, Texas (collectively ‘‘ZTE’’). The ’575 patent and respondent Pantech have been terminated from the investigation. The Commission Office of Unfair Import Investigations did not participate in this investigation. On September 30, 2013, the ALJ issued a final ID finding a violation of Section 337 by HTC. Specifically, the ALJ concluded that two of the accused HTC smartphones, i.e., the HTC Vivid and HTC Droid Incredible 4G LTE, infringe the asserted claims of the ’538 patent. The ALJ found, however, that none of the other accused HTC smartphones infringe the ’538 patent and that none of the accused HTC, Huawei, or ZTE smartphones infringe the asserted claims of the ’471 patent or the ’190 patent. The ALJ found that the smartphones of Flashpoint’s licensees [REDACTED] meet the technical prong of the domestic industry requirement with respect to the ’538 patent, but that none of the licensed [REDACTED] smartphones meet the technical prong of the domestic industry requirement with respect to either the ’471 or ’190 patents. The ALJ found that Flashpoint established the economic prong of the domestic industry requirement under Sections 337(a)(3)(A), (B), and (C) with respect to all of the asserted patents. The ALJ also found that HTC has not established that the asserted patents are invalid in view of the prior art or the onsale bar. The ALJ further found that the ’190 and ’538 patents are not unenforceable for failure to name an inventor. On October 31, 2013, Flashpoint filed a petition for review, challenging the ALJ’s determination with respect to: (1) The representativeness of the accused products for the ’538 patent, (2) claim construction for the ’471 patent, (3) noninfringement of the ’471 patent, (4) noninfringement of the ’190 patent, (5) technical prong for the ’471 patent, and (6) technical prong for the ’190 patent. On the same day, respondents HTC, Huawei, and ZTE filed a joint petition PO 00000 Frm 00074 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 for review, challenging the ALJ’s determination with respect to: (1) Noninfringement of the ’190 patent, (2) validity of the ’190 patent for anticipation and obviousness, (3) validity of the ’471 patent for anticipation and obviousness (4) technical prong for the ’190 patent, and (5) economic prong with respect to all asserted patents. HTC filed a separate petition for review with respect to issues affecting only HTC, challenging the ALJ’s determination with respect to (1) claim construction for the ’538 patent, (2) infringement of the ’538 patent, (3) validity of the ’538 patent for anticipation and obviousness, (4) noninfringement of the ’471 patent; (5) validity of the asserted patents with respect to the on-sale bar, and (6) enforceability of the asserted patents. The Commission has determined to review the ALJ’s findings regarding the following issues: (1) Infringement of the asserted claims of the ’538 patent by the HTC Vivid and HTC Droid Incredible 4G LTE smartphones; (2) the technical prong of the domestic industry requirement for the ’538 patent; (3) obviousness of the asserted claims of the ’538 patent over U.S. Patent No. 5,835,772 to Thurlo (‘‘Thurlo’’), U.S. Patent No. 5,740,801 to Branson (‘‘Branson’’), the ‘‘Admitted Prior Art’’ (‘‘APA’’), U.S. Patent No. 5,638,501 to Gough et al. (‘‘Gough’’), and U.S. Patent No. 5,898,434 to Small (‘‘Small’’); (4) claim construction of the term ‘‘operating system’’ in the asserted claims of the ’471 patent; (5) infringement of the ’471 patent by the accused HTC, Huawei, and ZTE products; (6) the technical prong of the domestic industry requirement for the ’471 patent; (7) anticipation of the asserted claims of the ’471 patent in view of U.S. Patent No. 5,687,376 to Celi, Jr. et al.; (8) infringement of the asserted claim of the ’190 patent; (9) technical prong of the domestic industry requirement for the ’190 patent; (10) anticipation and obviousness of the ’190 patent in view of U.S. Provisional Patent Application 60/037,963 to Parulski; (11) anticipation and obviousness of the ’190 patent in view of the Zaurus; (12) anticipation and obviousness of the ’‘190 patent in view of the Japanese Laid-Open Patent Application No. H09– 298678 to Kazu Saito; (13) validity of the ’538, ’471, and ’‘190 patents in view of the on-sale bar; (14) enforceability of claim 19 of the ’538 patent with respect to joint inventorship; and (15) the economic prong of the domestic industry requirement with respect to the ’539, ’471, and ’190 patents.
