The Commission instituted this investigation on January 28, 2011, based on a complaint filed by Microsoft Corporation of Redmond, Washington (“Microsoft”). 76 FR 5206 (Jan. 28, 2011). The complaint alleged violations of section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930 (19 U.S.C. 1337) in the importation into the United States, the sale for importation, and the sale within the United States after importation of certain game devices, components thereof, and products containing the same by reason of infringement of certain claims of United States Patent No. 7,787,411. The complaint named the following entities as respondents: Datel Design and Development Inc. of Clearwater, Florida; and Datel Design and Development Ltd., Datel Direct Ltd., Datel Holdings Ltd., and Datel Electronics Ltd. all of Staffordshire, United Kingdom (collectively, “Datel”).

On August 29, 2011, Microsoft filed a motion to terminate the investigation in its entirety based upon withdrawal of the complaint. On August 30, 2011, the Commission investigative attorney filed a response in support of the motion. On September 8, 2011, Respondent Datel filed a response in support of the motion and requested that the ALJ impose certain conditions on Microsoft.

On October 18, 2011, the ALJ issued the subject ID (Order No. 9) terminating the investigation. None of the parties petitioned for review of the ID. The Commission has determined not to review the ID. Accordingly, this investigation is terminated.
