The Commission instituted this investigation on September 9, 2013, based on a complaint filed by Straight Path IP Group, Inc., of Glen Allen, Virginia (“Straight Path”). 78 FR 55096 (Sept. 9, 2013).

The notice of institution named twenty-two respondents, including Sony Computer Entertainment America Inc. of Foster City, California (“SCEA Inc.”) and Sony Ericsson Mobile Communications (USA) Inc. of Atlanta, Georgia (“Sony Ericsson”).
