The Commission instituted the investigation on January 14, 2009, based on a complaint filed by O2 Micro International, Ltd. of the Cayman Islands and O2 Micro, Inc. of Santa Clara, California. 74 FR 2099. The complaint alleged 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 cold cathode fluorescent lamp inverter circuits and products containing the same by reason of infringement of various U.S. patents. The complaint named ten respondents, including LG Display Co., Ltd. and LG display America, Inc. (collectively “LGD”). On September 25, 2009, the Commission terminated the investigation as to LGD based on a consent order.

Based on a Consent Order.

On November 20, 2012, Respondents LGD filed a petition to modify the Commission's Consent Order based on allegations of changed circumstances. Specifically, LGD asked that paragraph 13 of the Consent Order, which contains a reporting requirement, be cancelled. On November 29, 2012, the Commission investigative attorney filed a response which did not oppose LGD's petition. Complainants did not file a response to LGD's petition.

The Commission has determined on its own initiative, to institute a modification proceeding. Upon consider of these particular circumstances, the Commission has determined that it is appropriate to modify the September 25, 2009 Consent Order by deleting paragraph 13. The Commission also terminates the modification proceeding.

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 210.76 of the Commission's Rules of Practice and Procedure (19 CFR 210.76).
