In an update to an article that I wrote for the Korea Times on 11/20/2008 the U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC) has accepted a patent infringement case against Samsung. Spansion claims the alleged infriging technology accounted for over U.S. $30 billion worth of profits for Samsung.
This is one of the largest patent infringement cases in U.S. history. If the past is any sign of the future, Samsung will settle this case prior to the finding by the ITC.
