The FID also contains the ALJ’s recommended determination recommending, if a violation is found, that the Commission issue a limited exclusion order prohibiting the importation of infringing infotainment systems, components thereof, and automobiles containing same that infringe. as well as cease and desist orders directed to certain domestic respondents. On November 26, 2019, Broadcom filed a petition for review of the FID and the respondents filed a contingent petition for review. On December 4, 2019, Broadcom and the respondents filed responses to each other’s petitions. On December 16, 2019, Broadcom filed a submission on the public interest pursuant to Commission Rule 210.50(a)(4) (19 CFR 210.50(a)(4)). That same day, Toyota, Renesas, and Tier 1 Suppliers (DENSO Corp., DENSO TEN, Panasonic, and Pioneer) filed their submissions on the public interest pursuant to Commission Rule 210.50(a)(4) (19 CFR 210.50(a)(4)). On December 18, 2019, two non-parties, Peter Morici and the Reshoring Initiative, filed submissions on the public interest in response to the Commission’s notice requesting such responses. 84 FR 64104 (Nov. 20, 2019). On March 3, 2020, the Commission determined to review the FID in part and requested briefing on certain issues. 85 FR 12576–78 (March 3, 2020). Specifically, the Commission VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:08 May 05, 2020 Jkt 250001 determined to review the FID’s findings on: (1) The claim construction of the limitation ‘‘at least one processor’’ recited in claims 25 and 26 of the ’583 patent; (2) infringement of the asserted claims of the ’583 patent; (3) technical prong of the domestic industry requirement as to the ’583 patent; (4) invalidity of the asserted claims of the ’752 patent; and (5) whether the accused Pioneer head units meet the limitations of claims 2 and 5 of the ’752 patent. Id. The Commission requested briefing on some of the issues under review, and remedy, bonding, and the public interest. Id. On March 11, 2020, the parties filed their written responses to the Commission’s request for briefing. On March 18, 2020, the parties filed their reply submissions. On March 11, 2020, additional submissions on remedy, bonding, and the public interest were received from the following non-parties: Representatives and Senators from Kentucky; Representatives and Senators from Texas; Harman International Industries, Incorporated; and the Alliance for Automotive Innovation. Having examined the record of this investigation, including the FID, the petitions for review, and the responses thereto, and filings in response to the Commission’s request for briefing, the Commission has determined to affirm, with modified reasoning, the FID’s finding of no violation of section 337. Specifically, the Commission affirms, with modified reasoning as explained in the Commission opinion, that: (1) Claims 25 and 26 of the ’583 patent are not infringed by any Respondent; (2) the technical prong of the domestic industry requirement is not met for the ’583 patent; (3) the Pioneer head units do not meet the limitations of claims 2 and 5 of the ’752 patent; and (4) claims 1, 2, 4, 5, 7, and 8 of the ’752 patent are invalid as anticipated and obvious. The Commission affirms the FID’s infringement finding as to claims 17 and 18 of the ’583 patent. The investigation is terminated. 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 Practice and Procedure (19 CFR part 210).
