SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Commission instituted this investigation on June 29, 2018, based on a complaint filed on behalf of Bose Corporation (‘‘Bose’’) of Framingham, Massachusetts. 83 FR 30776 (Jun. 29, 2018). The complaint alleges violations of section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended, 19 U.S.C. 1337 (‘‘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 earpiece devices and components thereof by reason of infringement of one or more claims of U.S. Patent Nos.: 9,036,852 (‘‘the ’852 patent’’); 9,036,853 (‘‘the ’853 patent’’); 9,042,590 (‘‘the ’590 patent’’); 8,311,253 (‘‘the ’253 patent’’); 8,249,287 (‘‘the ’287 patent’’); and the ’364 patent. The complaint further alleges that an industry in the United States exists as required by section 337. The notice of investigation named fourteen respondents. The Office of Unfair Import Investigations was also named as a party in this investigation. On October 31, 2019, the Commission issued a general exclusion order, a limited exclusion order, and cease and desist orders with respect to one or more asserted claims of the ’852, ’853, ’590, ’287, and ’253 patents. The investigation was thereby terminated with respect to these five patents. Also, on the October 31, 2019, the Commission remanded the investigation in part to the ALJ for further proceedings with respect to the ’364 patent. Commissioner Schmidtlein did not join the decision to remand the investigation. Instead, she would have affirmed on modified grounds the determination that Bose demonstrated the existence of a domestic industry under subparagraphs 337(a)(3)(A) and (B) with respect to the ’364 patent.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: We, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, 
invite the public to comment on applications for permits under section 
10(a)(1)(A) of the Endangered Species Act, as amended (ESA; 16 U.S.C. 
1531 et seq.). The requested permits would allow the applicants to 
conduct activities intended to promote recovery of species that are 
listed as endangered or threatened under the ESA.

Background

    With some exceptions, the ESA prohibits activities that constitute 
take of listed species unless a Federal permit is issued that allows 
such activity. The ESA's definition of ``take'' includes such 
activities as pursuing, harassing, trapping, capturing, or collecting 
in addition to hunting, shooting, harming, wounding, or killing.
    A recovery permit issued by us under section 10(a)(1)(A) of the ESA 
authorizes the permittee to conduct activities with endangered or 
threatened species for scientific purposes that promote recovery or for 
enhancement of propagation or survival of the species. These activities 
often include such prohibited actions as capture and collection. Our 
regulations implementing section 10(a)(1)(A) for these permits are 
found in the Code of Federal Regulations at 50 CFR 17.22 for endangered 
wildlife species, 50 CFR 17.32 for threatened wildlife species, 50 CFR 
17.62 for endangered plant species, and 50 CFR 17.72 for threatened 
plant species.

Permit Applications Available for Review and Comment

    Proposed activities in the following permit requests are for the 
recovery and enhancement of propagation or survival of the species in 
the wild. The ESA requires that we invite public comment before issuing 
these permits. Accordingly, we invite local, State, Tribal, and Federal 
agencies and the public to submit written data, views, or arguments 
with respect to these applications. The comments and recommendations 
that will be most useful and likely to influence agency decisions are 
those supported by quantitative information or studies.
