The complaint alleged 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 gaming and entertainment consoles, related software, and components thereof by reason by reason of infringement of various claims of United States Patent Nos. 6,069,896; 7,162,094; 6,980,596; 5,357,571; and 5,319,712. The notice of investigation named Microsoft Corporation of Redmond, Washington as the sole respondent.Id.

On October 4, 2012, Motorola filed a motion for leave to amend the complaint and notice of investigation to reflect a corporate name change of Motorola Mobility, Inc. from Motorola Mobility, Inc. to Motorola Mobility LLC. No responses to the motion were received.

On October 10, 2012, the ALJ issued the subject ID, granting the motion. The ALJ found that, pursuant to Commission Rule 210.14(b) (19 CFR 210.14(b)), good cause exists to amend the complaint and notice of investigation. None of the parties petitioned for review of the ID.

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 section 210.42 of the Commission's Rules of Practice and Procedure (19 CFR 210.42).

By order of the Commission.
