SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The Commission instituted this investigation on September 29, 2014, based on a complaint filed by Advanced Research Corporation of White Bear Lake, Minnesota (“ARC”). 79 FR 58382 (Sept. 29, 2014). The complaint alleged violations of section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (19 U.S.C. 1337), based upon the importation into the United States, the sale for importation, and the sale within the United States after importation of certain formatted magnetic data storage tapes and cartridges containing the same, by reason of infringement of five U.S. patents. The original notice of investigation named as respondents International Business Machines Corp. of Armonk, NY; Fujifilm Holdings Corporation of Tokyo, Japan; Fujifilm Corporation of Tokyo, Japan; and Oracle Corporation of Redwood Shores, California. Id. at 58383. The Office of Unfair Import Investigations is participating in the investigation. Id.

On November 18, 2014, ARC filed an unopposed motion to amend the complaint and notice of investigation to add as respondents Oracle America, Inc., of Redwood Shores, California, and Fujifilm Recording Media USA, Inc., of Bedford, Massachusetts.

On December 1, 2014, the ALJ issued the subject ID (Order No. 7) granting the motion to amend the complaint and notice of investigation. The ALJ found good cause for the amendment because ARC very recently learned of the additional respondents through discovery, the amendment would not delay the investigation, and the amendment would not prejudice the current parties to the investigation. No petitions for review of the ID were filed.

The Commission has determined not to review the 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).
