The public record for these investigations may be viewed on the Commission’s electronic docket (EDIS) at http://edis.usitc.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background.—The final phase of these investigations is being scheduled pursuant to sections 705(b) and 731(b) of the Tariff Act of 1930 (19 U.S.C. 1 For purposes of these investigations, the Department of Commerce has defined the subject merchandise as certain hot-rolled, flat-rolled steel products, with or without patterns in relief, and whether or not annealed, painted, varnished, or coated with plastics or other non-metallic substances. The products covered do not include those that are clad, plated, or coated with metal. The products covered include coils that have a width or other lateral measurement (‘‘width’’) of 12.7 mm or greater, regardless of thickness, and regardless of form of coil (e.g., in successively superimposed layers, spirally oscillating, etc.). The products covered also include products not in coils (e.g., in straight lengths) of a thickness of less than 4.75 mm and a width that is 12.7 mm or greater and that measures at least 10 times the thickness. The products described above may be rectangular, square, circular, or other shape and include products of either rectangular or non-rectangular cross-section where such cross-section is achieved subsequent to the rolling process, i.e., products which have been ‘‘worked after rolling’’ (e.g., products which have been beveled or rounded at the edges).

SUMMARY: FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Amanda Pitcher Fisherow, Esq., Office of the General Counsel, U.S. International Trade Commission, 500 E Street SW., Washington, DC 20436, telephone (202) 205–2737. 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.

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: The Commission instituted this investigation on January 27, 2015, based on a complaint filed on behalf of Cisco Systems, Inc. (‘‘Complainant’’) of San Jose, California. 80 FR 4314–15 (Jan. 27, 2015). The complaint was filed on December 19, 2014 and a supplement was filed on January 8, 2015. The complaint alleges violations of section 337 based upon the importation into the United States, the sale for importation, and the sale within the United States after importation of certain network devices, related software and components thereof by reason of infringement of certain claims of U.S. PO 00000 Frm 00105 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Patent No. 7,162,537 (‘‘the ’537 patent’’); U.S. Patent No. 8,356,296 (‘‘the ’296 patent’’); U.S. Patent No. 7,290,164 (‘‘the ’164 patent’’); U.S. Patent No. 7,340,597 (‘‘the ’597 patent’’); U.S. Patent No. 6,741,592 (‘‘the ’592 patent’’); and U.S. Patent No. 7,200,145 (‘‘the ’145 patent’’), and alleges that an industry in the United States exists as required by subsection (a)(2) of section 337. The ’296 patent was previously terminated from the investigation. A Commission investigative attorney (‘‘IA’’) is participating in the investigation. On February 2, 2016, the ALJ issued his final ID finding a violation of section 337. The ID found a violation with respect to the ’537, ’592 and ’145 patents. The ID found no violation for the ’597 and ’164 patents. On February 11, 2016, the ALJ issued his Recommended Determination on Remedy and Bonding (‘‘RD’’). On February 17, 2016, Cisco and Arista filed petitions for review. On March 3, 2016, the parties, including the IA, filed responses to the respective petitions for review. Having examined the record of this investigation, including the final ID, the petitions for review, and the responses thereto, the Commission has determined to review the final ID on the following issues: (1) Infringement of the ’537, ’597, ’592 and ’145 patents; (2) patentability of the ’597, ’592, and ’145 patents under 35 U.S.C. 101; (3) the construction of ‘‘said router configuration data managed by said database system and derived from configuration commands supplied by a user and executed by a router configuration subsystem before being stored in said database’’ of claims 1, 10, and 19 of the ’537 patent; (4) the construction of ‘‘a change to a configuration’’/‘‘a change in configuration’’ of claims 1, 39, and 71 of the ’597 patent; (5) equitable estoppel; (6) laches; (7) the technical prong of domestic industry for the ’537, ’597, ’592 and ’145 patents; (8) economic prong of domestic industry; and (9) importation. To the extent any findings that the Commission is reviewing herein implicates the ID’s findings for the ’164 patent (e.g., intent to induce infringement), the Commission reviews those findings for the ’164 patent. The parties are requested to brief their positions on the issues under review with reference to the applicable law and the evidentiary record. In connection with its review, the Commission is interested in only responses to the following questions. For each argument presented, the parties’ submissions should set forth whether such argument was presented to the ALJ and if so include citations to the record. E:\FR\FM\15APN1.SGM 15APN1

August 11, 2015 by AK Steel Corporation (West Chester, Ohio), 
ArcelorMittal USA, LLC (Chicago, Illinois), Nucor Corporation 
(Charlotte, North Carolina), SSAB Enterprises, LLC (Lisle, Illinois),

    For further information concerning the conduct of this phase of the 
investigations, hearing procedures, and rules of general application, 
consult the Commission's Rules of Practice and Procedure, part 201, 
subparts A and B (19 CFR part 201), and part 207, subparts A and C (19

    Although the Department of Commerce has preliminarily determined 
that imports of hot-rolled steel flat products from Korea and Turkey 
were subsidized at de minimis rates, for purposes of efficiency the 
Commission hereby waives rule 207.21(b) \3\ so that the final phase of 
these investigations may proceed concurrently in the event that 
Commerce makes a final affirmative determination with respect to such 
imports.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \3\ Section 207.21(b) of the Commission's rules provides that, 
where the Department of Commerce has issued a negative preliminary 
determination, the Commission will publish a Final Phase Notice of 
Scheduling upon receipt of an affirmative final determination from 
Commerce.
