SUMMARY: Notice is hereby given that the presiding administrative law

Determination on Remedy and Bonding in the above-captioned 
investigation. The Commission is soliciting comments on public interest 
issues raised by the recommended relief, should the Commission find a 
violation, specifically: a general exclusion order (``GEO'') covering 
accused products found to infringe the asserted patents; a limited 
exclusion order (``LEO'') covering accused products found to infringe 
the asserted patents; a LEO covering accused products found to infringe 
the asserted trademarks; and cease and desist orders (``CDOs'') 
directed against the participating respondents. This notice is 
soliciting public interest comments from the public only. Parties are 
to file public interest submissions pursuant to Commission rules.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Michael Liberman, Esq., Office of the 
General Counsel, U.S. International Trade Commission, 500 E Street SW., 
Washington, DC 20436, telephone (202) 205-3115. The public version of 
the complaint can be accessed on the Commission's electronic docket 
(EDIS) at https://edis.usitc.gov, and will be available for inspection 
during official business hours (8:45 a.m. to 5:15 p.m.) in the Office 
of the Secretary, U.S. International Trade Commission, 500 E Street 
SW., Washington, DC 20436, telephone (202) 205-2000.
    General information concerning the Commission may also be obtained 
by accessing its Intemet server (https://www.usitc.gov). The public 
record for this investigation may be viewed on the Commission's 
electronic docket (EDIS) at https://edis.usitc.gov. Hearing-impaired 
persons are advised that information on this matter can be obtained by 
contacting the Commission's TDD terminal on (202) 205-1810.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930 
provides that if the Commission finds a violation it shall exclude the 
articles concerned from the United States:

unless, after considering the effect of such exclusion upon the 
public health and welfare, competitive conditions in the United 
States economy, the production of like or directly competitive 
articles in the United States, and United States consumers, it finds 
that such articles should not be excluded from entry.

19 U.S.C. 1337(d)(l). A similar provision applies to cease and desist 
orders. 19 U.S.C. 1337(f)(l).
    The Commission is interested in further development of the record 
on the public interest in these investigations. Accordingly, parties 
are to file public interest submissions pursuant to pursuant to 19 CFR 
210.50(a)(4). In addition, members of the public are hereby invited to 
file submissions of no more than five (5) pages, inclusive of 
attachments, concerning the public interest in light of the 
administrative law judge's Recommended Determination on Remedy and 
Bonding issued in this investigation on August 23, 2017. Comments 
should address whether issuance of the recommended GEO, LEOs, and CDOs 
in this investigation, should the Commission find a violation, would 
affect the public health and welfare in the United States, competitive 
conditions in the United States economy, the production of like or 
directly competitive articles in the United States, or United States 
consumers.
    In particular, the Commission is interested in comments that:
    (i) explain how the articles potentially subject to the recommended 
orders are used in the United States;
    (ii) identify any public health, safety, or welfare concerns in the 
United States relating to the recommended orders;
    (iii) identify like or directly competitive articles that 
complainants, their licensees, or third parties make in the United 
States which could replace the subject articles if they were to be 
excluded;
    (iv) indicate whether complainants, complainants' licensees, and/or 
third party suppliers have the capacity to replace the volume of 
articles potentially subject to the recommended exclusion order and/or 
a cease and desist order within a commercially reasonable time; and
    (v) explain how the GEO, LEOs, and CDOs would impact consumers in 
the United States.
    Written submissions from the public must be filed no later than by 
close of business on Monday, September 11, 2017.
    Persons filing written submissions must file the original document 
electronically on or before the deadlines stated above and submit 8 
true paper copies to the Office of the Secretary by noon the next day 
pursuant to section 210.4(f) of the Commission's Rules of Practice and 
Procedure (19 CFR 210.4(f)). Submissions should refer to the 
investigation number (``Inv. No. 337-TA-1007, Inv. No. 337-TA-1021 
(Consolidated)'') in a prominent place on the cover page and/or the 
first page. (See Handbook for Electronic Filing Procedures, https://www.usitc.gov/secretary/documents/handbook_on_filing_procedures.pdf.) 
Persons with questions regarding filing should contact the Secretary 
(202-205-2000).
    Any person desiring to submit a document to the Commission in 
confidence must request confidential treatment. All such requests 
should be directed to the Secretary to the Commission and must include 
a full statement of the reasons why the Commission should grant such 
treatment. See 19 CFR 201.6. Documents for which confidential treatment 
by the Commission is properly sought will be treated accordingly. A 
redacted non-confidential version of the document must also be filed 
simultaneously with any confidential filing. All non-confidential 
written submissions will be available for public inspection at the 
Office of the Secretary and on EDIS.
    This action is taken under the authority of section 337 of the 
Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (19 U.S.C. 1337), and of sections 201.10 
and 210.50 of the
