A lot of press has been generated over the past year regarding a dispute between General Electric (GE) and Mitsubishi. In 2008, GE filed suit at the International Trade Commission (ITC) against Mitsubishi for infringing three U.S. patents held by GE. The impetus of the lawsuit centers around Mistubishi's 2.4 MW wind turbine, which Mitsubishi planned to import and later manufacture in the U.S. In January 2010, the ITC concluded its roughly two-year investigation and determined that Mitsubishi had not violated GE's patents. A month later, GE filed suit in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Texas, once again accusing Mistubishi of infringing the same GE patents.
