[The Chosun Ilbo, November 30 2007] Korea Wins in DRAM Dispute With Japan

The World Trade Organization in Geneva has ruled in favor of Korea's claims that punitive duties Japan imposed on chips from Korea's Hynix Semiconductor were discriminatory. The ruling ends a nearly two-year dispute over Japan's taxation on Korean-made DRAM chips.

The WTO's Dispute Settlement Body ruled against Japan's countervailing duties imposed on the chips, saying they violate the world body's convention on subsidies.
