Item 8.01.        Other Events.

InterDigital Communications Corporation and its wholly owned subsidiary,
InterDigital Technology Corporation, (together, "InterDigital") received notice
that the U.S. International Trade Commission ("ITC") has voted to institute an
investigation into whether Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd and certain of its
affiliates (collectively, "Samsung") engaged in unfair trade practices by
importing for sale certain 3G handsets and components that infringe on three of
InterDigital's patents. Products identified in the investigation include models
SGH-ZX20, SGH-i607 (also known as the "BlackJack(TM)"), SGH-A707 and SGH-ZX10.

The investigation was prompted by a complaint filed by InterDigital on March 23,
2007 in which the company is seeking a permanent exclusion order to bar from
entry into the U.S. infringing 3G WCDMA handsets and components that are
imported by or on behalf of Samsung. In addition, the complaint asks for a
permanent cease and desist order to bar further sales of infringing products
that have already been imported into the United States.

The case (No. 337-TA-601) has been referred to ITC Administrative Law Judge Paul
J. Luckern, who will schedule and hold an evidentiary hearing followed by an
initial determination. The ITC indicated in its press release dated April 23,
2007, that the final determination will be completed "at the earliest
practicable time," with a target date being announced within 45 days after the
institution of the investigation. As noted in InterDigital's previous press
release dated March 23, 2007 relating to the action, typical schedules used by
the ITC would result in a trial on the matter by January 2008.


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.
