This investigation was instituted on December 7, 2006, based on a complaint filed by ATEN International Co., Ltd. of Taipei, Taiwan, and ATEN Technology, Inc. of Irvine, California (collectively, “ATEN”). 71 FR 70983. The complaint alleges 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 switches and products containing the same by reason of infringement of various claims of United States Patent No. 7,035,112. The complaint named six respondents: Belkin Corp. of Compton, California; Belkin Logistics, Inc. of Compton, California; Emine Technology Co., Ltd. of Taipei, Taiwan; JustCom Tech, Inc. of San Jose, California; RATOC Systems, Inc. of Osaka, Japan; and RATOC Systems International, Inc. of Santa Clara, California.

On February 9, 2007, ATEN moved to amend the complaint and notice of investigation in order to reflect corporate name changes of two respondents. Specifically, ATEN sought to change Belkin Corp. and Belkin Logistics, Inc. to Belkin International, Inc. and Belkin, Inc., respectively. Respondents consented to ATEN's motion.

On February 20, 2007, the ALJ issued an ID (Order No. 4) granting ATEN's motion to amend the complaint and notice of investigation. No petitions for review were filed.

Having examined the record of this investigation, the Commission has determined not to review the ALJ's ID.

The authority for the Commission's determination is contained in section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (19 U.S.C. 1337), and in section 210.42 of the Commission's Rules of Practice and Procedure (19 CFR 210.42).
