SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The Commission instituted this investigation on January 31, 2013, based on a complaint filed by Nuance Communications, Inc. (“Nuance”) of Burlington, Massachusetts; Swype, Inc. (“Swype”); Tegic Communications, Inc. (“Tegic”); and ZI Corporation of Canada, Inc., all of Burlington, Massachusetts, alleging violations of section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930 (19 U.S.C. § 1337) by reason of infringement of certain claims of U.S. Patent Nos. 7,750,891; 7,453,439; 7,098,896; 7,075,520; and 6,286,064. The notice of investigation named Shanghai HanXiang (CooTek) Information Technology Co., Ltd. of Shanghai, China and Personal Communications Devices, LLC (“PCD”) of Hauppauge, New York as respondents. PCD has been terminated from the investigation.

On October 21, 2013, complainants Nuance, Swype, and Tegic and respondent CooTek filed a joint motion to terminate the investigation based on settlement. On October 22, 2013, the Office of Unfair Import Investigations filed a response supporting the motion.

On October 23, 2013, the ALJ issued an ID granting the motion. The ALJ noted that complainants represented that there were no agreements, written or oral, express or implied between the parties concerning the subject matter of the investigation. The motion also included both confidential and non-confidential versions of the settlement agreement. The ALJ further found that termination of the investigation is in the public interest. No petitions for review were filed.

The Commission has determined not to review the subject 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 of the Commission's Rules of Practice and Procedure (19 CFR § 210.42).
