Item 8.01.        Other Events.

On August 28, 2006 the Tribunal operating under the auspices of the
International Court of Arbitration of the International Chamber of Commerce in
the arbitration proceeding between InterDigital Communications Corporation, its
wholly-owned subsidiary, InterDigital Technology Corporation (collectively,
"InterDigital"), and Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. ("Samsung") issued its Final
Award ("Award"). Among its determinations, the Tribunal awarded InterDigital
approximately $134 million in past royalties plus interest on Samsung's sale of
single mode 2G GSM/TDMA and 2.5G GSM/GPRS/EDGE terminal units through 2005. On
September 5, 2006, InterDigital filed an action seeking to enforce the Award in
the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York.

On September 13, 2006, Samsung filed an opposition to the enforcement action,
including filing a cross-petition to vacate or modify the Award and to stay the
Award. InterDigital will continue to vigorously pursue enforcement of the Award
and oppose any action to stay, vacate or otherwise modify the Award.
