SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

On June 5, 2008, the Commission instituted this investigation, based on a complaint filed by Ford Global Technologies, LLC of Dearborn, Michigan (“Ford”). The complaint alleges violations of section 337 in the importation into the United States, the sale for importation, and the sale within the United States after importation of certain automotive parts by reason of infringement of U.S. Design Patent Nos D498,444; D501,162; D510,551; D508,223; D500,717; D539,448; D500,969; or D500,970. The respondents are Keystone Automotive Industries of Pomona, California; LKQ Corporation of Chicago, Illinois; U.S. Autoparts Networks, Inc. (“Autoparts”) of Carson, California; Jui Li Enterprise Co. of Kaohsiung Hsien, Taiwan; YCC Parts Manufacturing Co., Ltd. of Tao-yuan Hsien, Taiwan; TYC Brother Industrial Co., Ltd. of Tainan, Taiwan; Taiwan Kai Yih Industrial Co., Ltd. of Tainan City, Taiwan; and TYG Products L.P. of McKinney, Texas.

On April 3, 2009, Ford and U.S. Autoparts filed a joint motion under Commission rule 210.21(c)(3) to terminate the investigation as to Autoparts based on a consent order. On the same day, Ford and the remaining respondents filed a joint motion to terminate the investigation based on a settlement agreement. On April 16, 2009, the ALJ issued the subject orders, which granted both motions. No petitions for review of either ID were filed. The Commission has determined not to review the IDs.

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).
