Download as PDF khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with NOTICES 15224 Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 52 / Tuesday, March 17, 2020 / Notices during the period of Presidential review in the amount of five percent of the entered value of infringing articles. On September 18, 2019, ABI filed a petition for Commission review of aspects of the ID. That same day, Heineken filed a contingent petition for review. On September 26, 2019, the parties responded to each other’s petitions. On November 4, 2019, the Commission determined to review the ID in its entirety. Notice at 2 (Nov. 4, 2019) (‘‘Notice of Review’’), published at 84 FR 60452 (Nov. 8, 2019). The Commission solicited briefing on remedy, the public interest, and bonding, as well on specific issues concerning claim construction, infringement, invalidity, and the domestic industry requirement. On November 18, 2019, the parties filed opening briefs in response to the Notice of Review. On November 26, 2019, the parties filed replies to each other’s brief. Having reviewed the record of the investigation, including the Markman Order, the final ID, and the parties’ submissions to the ALJ and to the Commission, the Commission has found a violation of section 337. Specifically, the Commission finds that Heineken has demonstrated the existence of a domestic industry and that asserted claims 1, 3, 7, and 10 of the ’751 patent are infringed and are not invalid. The Commission has further determined that the appropriate remedy is: (1) A limited exclusion order prohibiting the entry of infringing beverage dispensing systems and components thereof; and (2) a cease and desist order directed to respondent Anheuser-Busch LLC. The Commission has determined that the public interest factors enumerated in section 337(d) and (f), 19 U.S.C. 1337(d), (f), do not preclude the issuance of the limited exclusion order or the cease and desist order. The Commission has determined that a bond in the amount of five (5) percent of the entered value of the imported beverage containers is required during the period of Presidential review. 19 U.S.C. 1337(j)(3). Notwithstanding the foregoing, the exclusion order and the cease and desist order permit ABI to import beverage containers that are used as part of ABI’s PureDraught system. The investigation is terminated. The Commission’s reasoning in support of its determinations is set forth more fully in its opinion. The Commission’s orders and opinion were delivered to the President and the United States Trade Representative on the day of their issuance.
