On September 5, 2001, the Commission determined not to review a final initial determination finding that respondent Altima Communications, Inc. (“Altima”) violated section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930 in the unlawful importation and sale of certain integrated repeaters covered by various claims of U.S. Patent No. 5,894,410 and U.S. Patent No. 5,742,603, owned by complainant Intel Corporation (“Intel”). On October 24, 2001, the Commission issued a limited exclusion order excluding from entry for consumption into the United States the infringing articles. The President did not disapprove the Commission's determination. See 19 U.S.C. 1337(j)(4).

On August 14, 2003, Intel filed with the Commission a Petition for Rescission of Exclusion Order based on a settlement agreement between Intel and Broadcom Corporation (“Broadcom”), Altima's parent. On August 19, 2003, Altima and Broadcom filed a response, stating that they join in the petition and request rescission. No party opposed the petition. The Commission found that the requirements of Commission rules 210.76(a)(1) and 210.76(a)(2), 19 CFR 210.76(a)(1) and (a)(2), were satisfied, and determined to grant the petition for rescission.

This action is taken under the authority of section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930, 19 U.S.C. 1337(k), and section 210.76(a) of the Commission's Rules of Practice and Procedure, 19 CFR 210.76(a).
