The Commission instituted this investigation on March 5, 2014, based on a complaint filed by Cresta Technology Corporation, of Santa Clara, California (“Cresta”), alleging 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 television sets, television receivers, television tuners, and components thereof by reason of infringement of certain claims of U.S. Patent Nos. 7,075,585; 7,265,792; and 7,251,466. 79 FR. 12526 (Mar 5, 2014). The notice of investigation named the following respondents: Silicon Laboratories, Inc. of Austin, Texas; Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd. Of Gyeonggi-do, Republic of Korea, Samsung Electronics America, Inc. of Ridgefield Park, New Jersey; LG Electronics, Inc. of Seoul, Republic of Korea, LG Electronics U.S.A. of Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey; MaxLinear, Inc. of Carlsbad, California; Sharp Corporation of Osaka, Japan, Sharp Electronics Corporation of Mahwah, New Jersey; and Vizio, Inc. of Irvine, California.

On April 21, 2014, Cresta filed a motion to amend the complaint and notice of investigation to add SIO International Inc., Hon Hai Precision Industry Co., Ltd., Wistron Corporation, Wistron Infocomm Technology (America) Corporation, Top Victory Investments Ltd., and TPV International (USA), Inc. (collectively, “Proposed Respondents”) as respondents.

On May 16, 2014, the presiding administrative law judge (“Judge Lord”) issued the subject ID (Order No. 12), over one opposition, granting Cresta's motion to amend the complaint and notice of investigation. The ALJ found that Cresta has demonstrated good cause to add the Proposed Respondents and that prejudice, if any, to the respondents will be minimal.

No petitions for review were filed.

The Commission has determined not to review the subject 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 Part 210 of the Commission's Rules of Practice and Procedure (19 CFR Part 210).
