Funai takes on 13 television importers, including Vizio, and wins

Funai has been in the news a lot lately with taking over Philips home theater biz and developing new LCD technology, but the companies recent lawsuit is extremely notable. Apparently the company just won its lawsuit that claims 14 companies are infringing on a Funai patent. The court has yet to decide wether these TVs all going to be banned from entering the U.S. of A. So it’s hard to say what’s going to happen to Vizio, Amtran, Proview, TPV, Top Victory Electronics, Envision, Syntax-Brillian, and Taiwan Kolin. Dare the courts ban the sales of these HDTVs during the important 4th quarter?
