On December 6, 2010, ALJ Rogers issued an Initial Determination terminating TSMC based on a settlement agreement in Inv. No. 337-TA-729, Certain Semiconductor Products Made By Advanced Lithography Techniques and Products Containing Same. The settlement agreement contains a license agreement whereby STC granted TSMC a perpetual, non-exclusive, worldwide, and irrevocable license to a list of U.S., Taiwanese, and Japanese Patents. Judge Roger’s order granting the termination found that the settlement agreement would not be contrary to the public interest.
