On August 17, 2012, the Commission issued its public opinion in Inv. No. 337-TA-553, In the Matter of Certain Semiconductor Chips and Products Containing the Same. The Commission the ALJ’s initial determination concerning domestic industry, and found that the Complainant Rambus did not meet its burden of proving a “substantial investment” in the exploitation of the asserted patents under 18 U.S.C. § 1337(a)(3) (C). Rambus relied on its total investments in its entire patent licensing program to prove domestic industry. But the Commission found that Rambus did not provide sufficient evidence to prove what portion of its investments were related to the patents in suit.
