SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The Commission instituted this investigation on September 3, 2008, based on a complaint filed by Microsoft Corp. (“Microsoft”). 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 peripheral devices, components thereof, and products containing the same by reason of infringement of various claims of seven United States patents. The complaint named Primax Electronics Ltd. (“Primax”) as the sole respondent.

On December 15, 2008, complainant Microsoft and respondent Primax filed a joint motion to terminate the investigation in its entirety based on a settlement agreement. On December 23, 2008, the Commission investigative attorney filed a response in support of the motion.

On January 5, 2009, the ALJ issued the subject ID, granting the joint motion to terminate the investigation on the basis of the settlement agreement. No petitions for review were filed.

The Commission has determined not to review the subject ID. The investigation is terminated.
