(‘‘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 SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00068 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 42375 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. 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. The complaint named Arista Networks, Inc. (‘‘Arista’’) of Santa Clara, California as the respondent. 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 based on the ’597 and ’164 patents. On February 11, 2016, the ALJ issued his Recommended Determination on Remedy and Bonding. 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. On April 11, 2016, the Commission determined to review the ID in-part. The Commission 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 inventions 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 reviewed implicated the ID’s findings for the ’164 patent (e.g., intent to induce infringement), the Commission also reviewed those findings for the ’164 patent. The parties briefed the issues on E:\FR\FM\29JNN1.SGM 29JNN1 mstockstill on DSK3G9T082PROD with NOTICES 42376 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 125 / Wednesday, June 29, 2016 / Notices review, remedy, bonding, and the public interest. After considering the final ID, written submissions, and the record in this investigation, the Commission has determined to affirm-in-part the final ID and to terminate the investigation with a finding of violation of section 337. Specifically, the Commission finds that a violation of section 337 has occurred for the ’537, ’592, and ’145 patents and no violation has occurred for the ’597 and ’164 patents. The Commission finds that the asserted claims of the ’597 and ’164 patents are not directly infringed by the accused products. Having found a violation of section 337 in this investigation, the Commission has determined that the appropriate form of relief is (1) a limited exclusion order prohibiting the unlicensed entry of certain network devices, related software and components thereof that infringe one or more of claims 1, 2, 8–11, and 17–19 of the ’537 patent; claims 6, 7, 20, and 21 of the ’592 patent; and claims 5, 7, 45, and 46 of the ’145 patent; and (2) a cease and desist order prohibiting Arista from importing, selling, marketing, advertising, distributing, transferring (except for exportation), and soliciting United States, agents or distributors for States certain network devices, related software and components thereof that infringe one or more of claims 1, 2, 8– 11, and 17–19 of the ’537 patent; claims 6, 7, 20, and 21 of the ’592 patent; and claims 5, 7, 45, and 46 of the ’145 patent. The Commission has also determined that the public interest factors enumerated in section 337(d) and (f) (19 U.S.C. 1337(d) and (f)) do not preclude issuance of the limited exclusion order or a cease and desist order. Finally, the Commission has determined that a bond during the period of Presidential review (19 U.S.C. 1337(j)) shall be in the amount of zero percent (0%) of the entered value of the imported articles that are subject to the limited exclusion order or cease and desist order. The Commission’s orders and opinion were delivered to the President and to the United States Trade Representative on the day of their issuance. 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).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Commission instituted this investigation

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. 
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. The complaint named 
Arista Networks, Inc. (``Arista'') of Santa Clara, California as the 
respondent. 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 based on the 
'597 and '164 patents. On February 11, 2016, the ALJ issued his 
Recommended Determination on Remedy and Bonding.
    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. On April 11, 2016, the Commission 
determined to review the ID in-part. The Commission 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 inventions 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 reviewed 
implicated the ID's findings for the '164 patent (e.g., intent to 
induce infringement), the Commission also reviewed those findings for 
the '164 patent. The parties briefed the issues on

review, remedy, bonding, and the public interest.
    After considering the final ID, written submissions, and the record 
in this investigation, the Commission has determined to affirm-in-part 
the final ID and to terminate the investigation with a finding of 
violation of section 337. Specifically, the Commission finds that a 
violation of section 337 has occurred for the '537, '592, and '145 
patents and no violation has occurred for the '597 and '164 patents. 
The Commission finds that the asserted claims of the '597 and '164 
patents are not directly infringed by the accused products.
    Having found a violation of section 337 in this investigation, the 
Commission has determined that the appropriate form of relief is (1) a 
limited exclusion order prohibiting the unlicensed entry of certain 
network devices, related software and components thereof that infringe 
one or more of claims 1, 2, 8-11, and 17-19 of the '537 patent; claims 
6, 7, 20, and 21 of the '592 patent; and claims 5, 7, 45, and 46 of the 
'145 patent; and (2) a cease and desist order prohibiting Arista from 
importing, selling, marketing, advertising, distributing, transferring 
(except for exportation), and soliciting United States, agents or 
distributors for States certain network devices, related software and 
components thereof that infringe one or more of claims 1, 2, 8-11, and 
17-19 of the '537 patent; claims 6, 7, 20, and 21 of the '592 patent; 
and claims 5, 7, 45, and 46 of the '145 patent.
    The Commission has also determined that the public interest factors 
enumerated in section 337(d) and (f) (19 U.S.C. 1337(d) and (f)) do not 
preclude issuance of the limited exclusion order or a cease and desist 
order. Finally, the Commission has determined that a bond during the 
period of Presidential review (19 U.S.C. 1337(j)) shall be in the 
amount of zero percent (0%) of the entered value of the imported 
articles that are subject to the limited exclusion order or cease and 
desist order. The Commission's orders and opinion were delivered to the 
President and to the United States Trade Representative on the day of 
their issuance.
    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).
