SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The Commission instituted this investigation on February 24, 2010, based on a complaint filed by Toshiba Corporation of Japan (“Toshiba”). 75 FR 8400. 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 notebook computer products and components thereof by reason of infringement of the '693 patent and U.S. Patent No. 5,430,867. The complaint names three respondents.

On March 8, 2010, Toshiba moved to amend the complaint and notice of investigation to correct the claims asserted from the '693 patent. In particular, Toshiba's motion indicates that claim 7 was erroneously identified instead of claim 4. Neither the Commission Investigative Attorney nor any of the respondents opposed this motion.

On March 9, 2010, the ALJ issued the subject ID correcting the claims asserted from the ‘693 patent to include claims 1, 2, 4, 5, 9, 15-17, and 20-22. No petitions for review of the ID 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).
