On March 17, 2020, the parties filed responses to each other’s petitions. On April 3, 2020, the ALJ issued a Recommended Determination on the Public Interest, Remedy, and Bond (‘‘RD’’) recommending that, should the Commission reverse her findings in the ID and find a violation of Section 337, then the Commission should issue a limited exclusion order, with a delayed implementation, and cease and desist orders against each Respondent.

Having reviewed the record in this investigation, including the ALJ’s orders and ID, as well as the parties’ petitions and responses thereto, the Commission has determined to review the ID in part, as follows: The Commission has determined to review and, on review, take no position on the ID’s findings regarding the following issues: (1) Whether INVT has standing before the Commission to assert the ’590, ’587, and ’439 patents; (2) whether INVT satisfied the economic prong of the domestic industry requirement; and (3) whether Respondents’ affirmative defenses of (i) patent exhaustion, (ii) equitable estoppel and waiver, and (iii) unclean hands bar the requested relief. The Commission has determined not to review the remaining findings in the final ID. Accordingly, the Commission has determined to affirm the final ID’s finding of no violation of section 337. The investigation is terminated. VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:21 Jun 04, 2020 Jkt 250001 The Commission has also determined to deny Apple’s motion for sanctions because the information at issue was not disclosed to unauthorized persons nor was it placed on the public record.
