Hitachi Admits Price Fixing LCDs; Pays $31 Million Fine

According to USA Today, Hitachi has pleaded guilt to price fixing and has agreed to a $31 million penalty.  Most of the Hitachi LCDs were sold to Dell Computer and didn’t directly affect consumer prices, but following Sharp, LG and Chunghwa Picture Tubes plea agreements in 2008, Hitachi agreed to settle out of court, too.
