By way of background, this investigation is based on a March 27, 2012 complaint filed by Technology Properties Limited LLC alleging violation of Section 337 by a number of Respondents in the importation into the U.S. and sale of certain computers and computer peripheral devices, components thereof, and products containing the same that infringe one or more claims of U.S. Patent Nos. 6,976,623 (the ‘623 patent), 7,162,549 (the ‘549 patent), 7,295,443 (the ‘443 patent), 7,522,424 (the ‘424 patent), 6,438,638 (the ‘638 patent), and 7,719,847 (the ‘847 patent).

According to the August 2, 2013 notice, ALJ Essex held in the ID that (1) a violation of Section 337 has occurred in this investigation with respect to claims 1-4 and 9-12 of the ‘623 patent, and (2) no violation of Section 337 has occurred in this investigation with respect to claims 7, 11, 19, and 21 of the ‘549 patent; claims 1, 3, 4, 7, 9, 11, 12, and 14 of the ‘443 patent; claims 25, 26, 28, and 39 of the ‘424 patent; claims 17-19 of the ‘623 patent; and claims 1-3 of the ‘847 patent.
