BATTLE OF THE TITANS: In my opinion, one of the classic fights between behemoths - Fujitsu and Samsung are pounding each other over PDP (plasma display panel) technology. In the fourth quarter of 2003, Samsung SDI was the world’s second-largest PDP maker with 22% of total global shipments. Fujitsu is the owner of key pieces of PDP IP. All PDP manufacturers in Japan are paying royalties to Fujitsu in return for access to its fundamental patents.

Recently, Samsung (who is from South Korea), got dinged when Japanese customs officials suspended the import of Samsung panels in response to Fujitsu's April 6 lawsuit filed in the Tokyo District Court and the U.S. District Court in Los Angeles, which accused Samsung of patent violations.

In the immortal words of Chief Wiggum, "this is going to get worse before it gets better"
