SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

This investigation was instituted on March 7, 2008, based on a complaint filed by Presstek, Inc. of Hudson, NH. The complaint alleged 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 laser imageable lithographic printing plates that infringe certain claims of U.S. Patent Nos. 5,339,737 and 5,487,338 and U.S. Trademark Reg. No. 1,711,005.

On April 23, 2008, Presstek filed a motion to amend the complaint and notice of investigation to add Spicers as a respondent. Respondents VIM Technologies, Ltd.; AteCe Canada; Guaranteed Service & Supplies, Inc.; and Recognition Systems, Inc. filed a response opposing the motion. The Commission investigative attorney filed a response in support of the motion. The ALJ issued the subject ID granting Presstek's motion on June 26, 2008. No petitions for review were filed.
