On July 9, 2012, ALJ David P. Shaw issued a notice regarding the Initial Determination (“ID”) in Certain Light-Emitting Diodes and Products Containing the Same (Inv. No. 337-TA-784).

By way of background, the investigation is based on a June 3, 2011 complaint filed by OSRAM GmbH (“OSRAM”) alleging that Respondents LG Electronics, Inc., LG Innotek Co., Ltd., LG Electronics U.S.A., Inc., and LG Innotek U.S.A., Inc. (collectively, “LG”) violated Section 337 by infringing various patents.   See our July 7, 2011 post for more details.  

According to the notice, ALJ Shaw held a violation of Section 337 has occurred in this investigation by LG by reason of infringement of certain valid claims of U.S. Patent No. 7,151,283.

ALJ Shaw further held that LG’s accused products did not infringe U.S. Patent No. 7,271,425.  In addition, ALJ Shaw determined that the domestic industry requirement was satisfied by OSRAM with respect to all asserted patents.

The notice issued by ALJ Shaw released only the information noted above.  We will provide additional information once the public version of the ID issues in its entirety.
