Item 8.01. Other Events.

         On March 23, 2007, Samsung Telecommunications America LLP and Samsung
Electronics Co., Ltd. (collectively, "Samsung"), filed an action against
InterDigital Communications Corporation and its wholly-owned subsidiaries,
InterDigital Technology Corporation and Tantivy Communications, Inc.
(collectively, "InterDigital"), in the United States District Court for the
District of Delaware. Under the complaint, Samsung asserts that InterDigital has
refused to comply with its alleged contractual obligations to be prepared to
license its patents on fair, reasonable, and non-discriminatory ("FRAND") terms,
and that InterDigital has allegedly engaged in unfair business practices.
Samsung seeks damages and declaratory relief, including declarations that: (i)
InterDigital's patents and patent applications allegedly promoted to standards
bodies are unenforceable as to Samsung; (ii) Samsung has a right to practice
InterDigital's intellectual property incorporated into products purchased from
Qualcomm; (iii) that nine of InterDigital's patents are invalid and/or not
infringed by Samsung; and (iv) InterDigital must offer Samsung a license on
FRAND terms.

         This action follows InterDigital's earlier filed complaints on March
23, 2007 with the U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC) and with the United
States District Court for the District of Delaware against Samsung Electronics
Co., Ltd. and certain of its affiliates.

         InterDigital intends to vigorously defend itself against Samsung's
allegations in this matter.


Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the
registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the
undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
