(Apr. 12, 2017). The complaint alleged 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 non-volatile memory 
devices and products containing the same that infringe certain claims 
of U.S. Patent No. 6,552,360; U.S. Patent No. 6,788,602 (``the '602

Systems, Inc. of Irvine, California; and Toshiba Information Equipment

    On June 16, 2017, the Commission determined not to review the ALJ's 
order (Order No. 11) granting an unopposed motion to amend the Notice 
of Investigation to add Toshiba Memory Corporation of Tokyo, Japan as a 
respondent. See Order 11, Comm'n Notice of Non-Review (June 16, 2017).
    On April 13, 2018, the ALJ issued her final initial determination 
finding no violation of section 337 violation with respect to the 
asserted patents. On June 28, 2018, the Commission determined to review 
the final ID in part. See 83 FR 31416-18 (July 5, 2018). On review, the 
Commission found a violation of section 337 in connection with asserted 
claim 6 of the '602 patent. See 83 FR 51980-82 (Oct. 15, 2018). Having 
found a violation, the Commission determined that the appropriate 
remedy is a limited exclusion order (``LEO'') against Toshiba's 
infringing products and cease and desist orders (``CDOs'') against the 
domestic Toshiba respondents. See id.
    On October 15, 2018, Macronix and Toshiba filed a joint petition to 
rescind the LEO and CDOs based upon a license and settlement agreement. 
The petition states that rescission is warranted because ``the specific 
conduct covered by the Remedial Orders has become authorized or 
licensed by way of settlement and license.'' Petition at 2. On October 
25, 2018, the Commission investigative attorney filed a response in 
support of the petition. No other party filed response or opposition to 
the petition.

no longer exist, and therefore, granting the petition is warranted 
under 19 U.S.C. 1337(k) and 19 CFR 210.76(a). Accordingly, the 
Commission has determined to rescind the remedial orders.
    The authority for the Commission's determination is contained in
