Pioneer Suing Samsung Over Plasma Patents

Don't you just love lawsuits? It looks like Pioneer is going after Samsung for Patent infringements. According to

Japan's Pioneer has filed suit in the United States against Samsung SDI and Samsung Electronics for what it says are patent violations of its plasma display-panel technology.

South Korea's Samsung SDI, the world's top plasma display-panel maker, said it plans to file a countersuit, although no date has been set.

Pioneer's move, announced Monday, is the latest in a series of intellectual property suits and countersuits between Japanese companies and their Asian rivals as they seek to maintain a technological edge.

The article continues:

Pioneer is asking for a court order to stop Samsung SDI's sales of plasma display panels and compensation for alleged violations of a patent for electrode configuration boosting display quality and another patent for a manufacturing step that increases display brightness.

The problem with these types of lawsuits is they're awful expensive and of course we know someone has to pay. Betcha it won't be the lawyers!
