SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Commission instituted this investigation on December 8, 2016, based on a complaint filed by Pacific Biosciences of California, Inc. of Menlo Park, California (‘‘PacBio’’). 81 FR 88703–04 (Dec. 8, 2016). The complaint alleges violations of section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended, 19 U.S.C. 1337, in the importation into the United States, the sale for importation, and the sale within the United States after importation of certain single-molecule nucleic acid sequencing systems and reagents, SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00058 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 consumables, and software for use with same by reason of infringement of certain claims of U.S. Patent No. 9,404,146 (‘‘the ’146 patent’’). Id. at 88704. The notice of investigation named as respondents Oxford Nanopore Technologies Ltd. of Oxford, United Kingdom; Oxford Nanopore Technologies, Inc. of Cambridge, Massachusetts; and Metrichor, Ltd. of Oxford, United Kingdom (collectively, ‘‘Respondents’’). Id. The Office of Unfair Import Investigations (‘‘OUII’’) also was named as a party to the investigation. Id. On February 3, 2017, PacBio filed a motion to amend the complaint and notice of investigation to add allegations of violation of section 337 through the sale for importation, importation, or sale after importation into the United States of articles that infringe claims 1 and 3– 11 of U.S. Patent No. 9,542,527 (‘‘the ’527 patent’’). Specifically, PacBio sought to add allegations that Respondents directly infringe, contributorily infringe, and/or induce the infringement of the asserted claims of the ’527 patent. Respondents and OUII did not oppose the motion. On February 21, 2017, the presiding administrative law judge (‘‘ALJ’’) issued an ID, Order No. 6, granting the motion to amend the complaint and notice of investigation. The ALJ found good cause for the amendment. The ALJ found that PacBio could not have asserted the ’527 patent when it filed the original complaint because the ’527 patent was issued after institution of the investigation, and that PacBio sought to add the allegations relating to the ’527 patent soon after its issuance. The ALJ also found that the amendment would not prejudice the public interest or the parties. The ALJ found that (1) the ’527 patent involves the same technology as the ’146 patent; (2) the ’527 and ’146 patents are related, claim priority to the same provisional application, name the same inventors, and share a substantially identical specification; and (3) PacBio represents that the accused products and domestic industry products for the ’527 and ’146 patents are identical, obviating the need for excessive additional discovery. The ALJ also found that the amendment was in the public interest because litigating the ’527 and ’146 patents in separate investigations would waste judicial and public resources. No petitions for review of the ID were filed. The Commission has determined not to review the subject ID. 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 E:\FR\FM\27MRN1.SGM 27MRN1
