A NINTENDO NOOSE FOR SAMSUNG

POW! CRASH! LAWSUIT! AFTER repeatedly warning Korean giant Samsung to stop making memory chips encoded with counterfeit video-game programs, Nintendo of America says it discovered Samsung's name under a layer of black epoxy in a pirated copy of the megahit Donkey Kong Country. On Jan. 18, Nintendo filed a multimillion-dollar suit against Samsung, which also makes memory chips for legitimate Nintendo video games. Nintendo says it has not decided whether to cut off Samsung as a chip supplier. Samsung denies knowing of any counterfeit activity.EDITED BY KEITH H. HAMMONDS
