SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The Commission instituted this investigation on May 21, 2010, based on a complaint filed by Georgia-Pacific Consumer Products LP of Atlanta, Georgia (“Georgia-Pacific”), alleging 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 electronic paper towel dispensing devices and components thereof by reason of infringement of certain claims of United States Patent Nos. 6,871,815; 7,017,856; 7,182,289; and 7,387,274. 75 FR 28651-2 (May 21, 2010). The complainant named as respondents Kruger Products LP of Mississauga, Canada (“Kruger”); KTG USA LP of Memphis, Tennessee (“KTG USA”); Stefco Industries, Inc. of Haines City, Florida (“Stefco”); Cellynne Corporation of Haines City, Florida (“Cellyne”); Draco Hygienic Products Inc. of Ontario, California; NetPak Electronic Plastic and Cosmetic, Inc., d/b/a/Open for Business of Chicago, Illinois (“NetPak Chicago”); NetPak Electronik Plastik ve Kozmetik Sanayi, Ve Ticaret Ltd of Izmir, Turkey (“NetPak Turkey”); Paradigm Marketing Consortium, Inc. of Syosset, New York; United Sourcing Network Corp. of Syosset, New York; New Choice (H.K.) Ltd. of Shatin, Hong Kong; and Vida International Inc. of Taipei, Taiwan.

On June 23, 2010, Georgia-Pacific filed a motion seeking to amend the complaint and Notice of Investigation for the following reasons: (1) To correct the corporate name of NetPak Chicago; (2) to redefine “Kruger” to “Kruger Products and/or KTG USA”; (3) to indicate that Georgia-Pacific no longer alleges that NetPak Turkey is the source of Stefco's and Cellynne's accused product; (4) to add new proposed respondent Jet Power International Limited; (5) to add new proposed respondents Winco Industries Co. and DWL Industries Co.; (6) to add new proposed respondent Ko-Am Corporation d/b/a/Janitors' World; (7) to add new proposed respondent Natury, S.A. De C. V.; (8) to add new proposed respondent Update International Inc.; and (9) to add new proposed respondent Alliance in Manufacturing LLC. No responses to the motion were filed.

On July 29, 2010, the ALJ issued the subject ID granting the motion, finding that, pursuant to Commission Rule 210.14(b)(1) (19 CFR 210.14(b)(1)), there is good cause to correct the corporate names of the identified respondents and to add the newly proposed respondents. No petitions for review of this ID were filed.

The Commission has determined not to review the 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).
