Vizio Import Ban Overturned, Free To Ship TVs To USS

US customs has cleared Vizio in an ongoing patent dispute with Funai, meaning that they will be allowed to freely ship their HDTVs into the US once more.

In all likelihood, Funai will appeal the ruling—but outside of a courtroom miracle, this should effectively bring the situation to a close. The reality is that patent infringement cases like this pop up from time to time, and victory seems rare. [Vizio via Electronista]
