SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Commission instituted this investigation 
on February 18, 2015, based on a complaint filed by Cree. 80 FR 8685-86 
(Feb. 18, 2015). The complaint alleged 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 light-
emitting diode products and components thereof by reason of 
infringement of certain claims of U.S. Patent Nos. 7,976,187; 
8,766,298; 6,657,236; 7,312,474; 8,596,819; and 8,628,214. The 
complaint also alleged violations of section 337 with respect to two 
other patents that have since been terminated from the investigation. 
The complaint further alleged violations of section 337 based on false 
and misleadingly advertised light-emitting diode products and 
components thereof in violation of section 43(a) of the Lanham Act, 15 
U.S.C. 1125(a), and/or the federal common law of unfair competition. 
The notice of investigation named Feit; Unity Opto Technology Co., Ltd. 
of New Taipei City, Taiwan; and Unity Microelectronics, Inc. of Plano, 
Texas (collectively, ``Unity'') as respondents. The Office of Unfair 
Import Investigations was also a party to the investigation.
    On July 29, 2016, the presiding administrative law judge issued a 
final initial determination (``ID''), finding a violation of section 
337 by Respondents. On September 29, 2016, the Commission determined, 
upon the parties' respective petitions, to review the ID in part, and 
requested briefing from the parties on the issues under review. On 
October 7, 2016, Respondents moved the Commission to reopen the record 
in this investigation in order to admit the results of verification 
testing for certain Feit accused products. On October 13, 2016, the 
parties submitted their respective briefs on the issues under review.
    On December 16, 2016, Cree and Feit filed a joint motion to 
terminate the investigation in its entirety based on a settlement and 
license agreement. See Joint Motion to Terminate Investigation Based on 
Settlement and License Agreement (Dec. 16, 2016). Cree and Feit state 
in their joint motion to terminate that the ``investigation should also 
be terminated as to [Unity], given that the Unity products-at-issue in 
this investigation are imported and/or made solely on behalf of Feit, 
and are thus covered by the Agreement.'' Id. at 1. Unity did not oppose 
the motion. On December 20, 2016, the Commission Investigative Attorney 
filed a response in support of the joint motion to terminate. Also, on 
December 16, 2016, Cree and Feit filed an unopposed joint motion to 
stay the issuance of the final determination based on the joint motion 
to terminate. On December 19, 2016, the Commission extended the target 
date for completion of this investigation to January 26, 2017.
    Having examined the record of this investigation, the Commission 
has determined to grant the joint motion to terminate the 
investigation. Cree and Feit's joint motion to stay and Respondents' 
motion to reopen the

record are moot. The investigation is terminated in its entirety.
    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
