SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Commission instituted this investigation on November 17, 2014, based on a complaint filed on behalf of Converse Inc. of North Andover, Massachusetts. 79 FR 68482 (Nov. 17, 2014). The complaint alleges, inter alia, violations of section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended, 19 U.S.C. 1337, based upon the importation into the United States, the sale for importation, and the sale within the United States after importation of certain footwear products by reason of infringement of U.S. Trademark Registration No. 4,398,753 (‘‘the ’753 Registration’’), registered on September 10, 2013, and the common law trademark rights for the same mark (the ‘‘Converse Midsole Trademark’’ or ‘‘CMT’’). See id. The Commission’s notice of investigation names numerous respondents including Skechers U.S.A., Inc. (‘‘Skechers’’) of Manhattan Beach, California, and Highline United LLC d/ b/a Ash Footwear USA (‘‘Highline’’), now of Hyde Park, Massachusetts. Id. at 68482–483. New Balance Athletic Shoe, Inc. (‘‘New Balance’’) of Boston, Massachusetts, was subsequently added to the investigation as a respondentintervenor. 80 FR 9748 (Feb. 24, 2015). These three respondents remain active in the investigation. The following five respondents were found in default: Dioniso SRL of Perugia, Italy; Shenzhen Foreversun Industrial Co., Ltd. (a/k/a Shenzhen Foreversun Shoes Co., Ltd.) of Shenzhen, China; Fujian Xinya I&E Trading Co. Ltd. of Jinjiang, China; and Zhejiang Ouhai International Trade Co. Ltd. and Wenzhou Cereals Oils & Foodstuffs Foreign Trade Co. Ltd., both of Wenzhou, China. Every other respondent was terminated from the investigation or settled with Complainant after the Commission’s final determination. The Office of Unfair Import Investigations (‘‘OUII’’) is also a party to the investigation. 79 FR 68483. The investigation was remanded to the Commission by the Federal Circuit in Converse, Inc. v. International Trade Commission, 909 F.3d 1110 (Fed. Cir. 2018). On April 9, 2019, the Commission, in turn, remanded the matter to the ALJ who adjudicated the original investigation. On October 9, 2019, The ALJ issued his RID finding no violation of section 337 as to all accused products of each active respondent. Specifically, the RID found that Converse had not established secondary meaning of the CMT prior to the time of first infringement for any PO 00000 Frm 00078 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 active respondent and, therefore, there were no valid common law trademark rights in the CMT. The RID also found that the active respondents’ accused products do not infringe even if the CMT were found to have acquired secondary meaning, except for one Skechers product found to infringe. The RID further found a violation as to the accused products of the defaulting respondents because they infringe the CMT after the registration date of the ‘753 Registration. On October 22, 2019, Converse, the active respondents, and OUII each filed a petition for review of the RID. On October 30, 2019, each of these parties filed responses to the other petitions for review. Having reviewed the record of the investigation, including the parties’ briefing, the Commission has determined to review the RID in part. Specifically, the Commission has determined to review the RID’s infringement, validity, and injury analyses with respect to the asserted common law and federal registration rights in the CMT. See RID at 8–86, 87. The Commission now requests briefing from the parties on the following questions: (1) For each of the six (6) secondarymeaning factors in Converse, 909 F.3d at 1120, please identify and discuss the evidence in the record you assert is relevant to whether the CMT has acquired secondary meaning prior to the first infringing use by each active respondent. Pay special attention to evidence that falls within five years before the relevant first use dates and to the questions below. Provide a summary of your evidence in a table including the specific factor (or subpart thereof) to which each piece of evidence is relevant, the date of the evidence, and the impact of the evidence on consumer perceptions. Any evidence not included in your submission will be deemed waived and will not be considered. a. Factor 2—For each relevant time frame, identify which third-party’s shoes, having designs substantially similar to the CMT design, were in use in the United States. Explain (1) why each shoe’s design is substantially similar to the CMT; (2) the extent of that third-party use; and (3) the impact of that use on the consuming public (through the extent or volume of sales, etc.). Explain whether third-party uses can be considered if there is no evidence of the impact of that use on the consuming public. Include a table summarizing the third-party use upon which you rely, why the use is substantially similar, and the extent and impact of the third-party use. For the E:\FR\FM\13FEN1.SGM 13FEN1
