The Commission instituted this investigation on April 27, 2007, based on a complaint filed by InterDigital Communications Corp. of King of Prussia, Pennsylvania and InterDigital Technology Corp. of Wilmington, Delaware (collectively, “InterDigital”). 72 FR. 21049 (April 27, 2007). The complaint, as amended and supplemented, alleges violations of section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended, 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 3G wideband code division multiple access (WCDMA) handsets and components thereof by reason of infringement of claims 1, 2, 7-10, 14, 15, 21, 22, 24, 30-32, 34, 35, 46, 47, 49, 59, and 60 of U.S. Patent No. 7,117,004; claims 7 and 10 of U.S. Patent No. 6,674,791; claims 1-4 of U.S. Patent No. 6,693,579; and claims 1, 3, and 6-12 of U.S. Patent No. 7,190,966. The complaint further alleges the existence of a domestic industry as required by section 337(a)(2). The notice of investigation named Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. of Seoul, Korea; Samsung Electronics America, Inc. of Ridgefield Park, New Jersey; and Samsung Telecommunications America LLC of Richardson, Texas (collectively, “Samsung”) as respondents.

On September 12, 2007, InterDigital filed a motion to substitute parties. Specifically, InterDigital moved to substitute one of the co-complainants, InterDigital Communications Corporation, with InterDigital Communications, LLC. InterDigital stated in its motion that the substitution will not substantively affect the investigation, and the Commission investigative attorney made no objection. Likewise, Samsung made no objection, subject to certain conditions.

On September 27, 2007, the ALJ granted InterDigital's motion to substitute parties, without conditions. No petitions for review were filed. 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).
