This investigation was instituted on August 7, 2001, to determine whether there is a violation of section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended, in the importation into the United States, sale for importation, or the sale within the United States after importation of certain clay target throwing machines and components thereof by reason by infringement of claims 1 or 6 of U.S. Letters Patent 5,249,563, or claims 1, 9, 10, 15, or 16 of U.S. Letters Patent 6,176,229 and whether an industry in the United States exists as required by subsection (a)(2) of section 337. 66 FR 42168 (2001). On March 13, 2002, complainant and respondents filed a Joint Motion for Termination of Investigation As to [Respondents] Based Upon a Settlement Agreement and License. On March 22, 2002, the Commission investigative attorney filed a response in support of the joint motion. On June 6, 2002, the presiding ALJ issued an ID (Order No. 5) granting the joint motion based on the settlement agreement and a non-exclusive patent license. There being no other respondents in the investigation, the ALJ ordered the investigation terminated in its entirety. No party petitioned for review of the ID.
