This patent-based section 337 investigation was instituted by the Commission on Aug. 31, 2004, based on a complaint filed by Media Tek, Inc., of Hsin-Chu City, Taiwan. 69 FR 53098 (Aug. 31, 2004). The complainant alleged violations of section 337 in the importation and sale of certain optical disk controller chips and chipsets and products containing the same, including DVD players and PC optical storage devices by reason of infringement of certain claims of U.S. Patent Nos. 5,970,031; 6,229,773; 6,170,043.

On June 21, 2005, the ALJ issued an ID (Order No. 74) extending the target date of the investigation by two months, i.e., until January 30, 2006. No party petitioned for review of the ID.
