This site displays a prototype of a “Web 2.0” version of the daily Federal Register. It is not an official legal edition of the Federal Register, and does not replace the official print version or the official electronic version on GPO’s govinfo.gov.
The documents posted on this site are XML renditions of published Federal Register documents. Each document posted on the site includes a link to the corresponding official PDF file on govinfo.gov. This prototype edition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov will remain an unofficial informational resource until the Administrative Committee of the Federal Register (ACFR) issues a regulation granting it official legal status. For complete information about, and access to, our official publications and services, go to About the Federal Register on NARA's archives.gov.
The OFR/GPO partnership is committed to presenting accurate and reliable regulatory information on FederalRegister.gov with the objective of establishing the XML-based Federal Register as an ACFR-sanctioned publication in the future. While every effort has been made to ensure that the material on FederalRegister.gov is accurately displayed, consistent with the official SGML-based PDF version on govinfo.gov, those relying on it for legal research should verify their results against an official edition of the Federal Register. Until the ACFR grants it official status, the XML rendition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov does not provide legal notice to the public or judicial notice to the courts.

The Commission instituted this investigation on August 19, 2010, based on a complaint filed by Vizio, Inc. of Irvine, California. 75 FR 51285-86 (August 19, 2010). The complaint alleges violations of section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended, 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 flat panel digital televisions and components thereof by reason of infringement of certain claims of U.S. Patent Nos. 5,703,887 (“the '887 patent”); 5,233,629 (“the '629 patent”); 5,511,096; 5,621,761; 5,745,522; 5,511,082; and 5,396,518. The complaint further alleges the existence of a domestic industry. The Commission's notice of investigation named the following respondents: LG Electronics, Inc. of South Korea and LG Electronics, Inc. of Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey.
On November 24, 2010, the Commission issued notice of its determination not to review the ALJ's ID terminating the investigation as to claims 15-21 of the '887 patent, and all asserted claims of the '629 patent, based on withdrawal of these '887 patent claims and the '629 patent.
On January 18, 2011, complainant and respondents jointly moved to terminate the investigation on the basis of a settlement agreement. The Commission investigative attorney filed a response in support of the motion.
The ALJ issued the subject ID on January 26, 2011, granting the motion for termination. He found that the motion for termination satisfies Commission rule 210.21(b). He further found, pursuant to Commission rule 210.50(b)(2), that termination of this investigation by settlement agreement is in the public interest. No party petitioned for review of the ID. The Commission has determined not to review the ID, and 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 sections 210.21 and 210.42(h) of the Commission's Rules of Practice and Procedure, 19 CFR 210.21, 210.42(h).Start Signature
