The Commission instituted this investigation on February 24, 2010, based on a complaint filed by Motorola, Inc. (“Motorola”) of Schaumburg, Illinois. 75 FR 8401 (Feb. 24, 2010). The complainant named the following respondents: Research in Motion Limited and Research in Motion Corporation (collectively “RIM”). The complaint alleges violations of section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930, 19 U.S.C. 1337, based upon the importation into the United States, the sale for importation, and the sale within the United States after importation of certain wireless communications system server software, wireless handheld devices and battery packs by reason of infringement of certain claims of U.S. Patent Nos. 5,319,712; 5,359,317; 5,569,550; 6,232,970; and 6,272,333.

On June 17, 2010, Motorola and RIM filed a joint motion before the ALJ to terminate the investigation on the basis of a settlement agreement. A copy of their settlement agreement is attached to the joint motion. On June 24, 2010, the Commission investigative attorney (“IA”) filed a response supporting the parties' motion. On June 29, 2010, the ALJ issued the subject ID granting the joint motion to terminate. No petitions for review were filed.

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

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(h) of the Commission's Rules of Practice and Procedure (19 CFR 210.42(h)).
