On November 6, 2012, ALJ David P. Shaw issued Order No. 16 in Certain Products Containing Interactive Program Guide And Parental Control Technology (Inv. No. 337-TA-845).

In the Order, ALJ Shaw granted a motion filed by Respondents Mitsubishi Electric Corp. and Mitsubishi Electric Visual Solutions America, Inc. (collectively, “Mitsubishi”) to terminate the investigation as to U.S. Patent No. 6,701,523 (the ‘523 patent) based on a consent order.  According to the Order, the ‘523 patent has been asserted only against Mitsubishi in the investigation.  None of the other parties to the investigation opposed Mitsubishi’s motion.
