On 12 December 2017, Japan's Supreme Court ruled that the Japan Antimonopoly Act prohibits price-fixing of products supplied outside Japan to overseas subsidiaries of Japanese companies.

 

On this basis, the court upheld a penalty imposed by the Japan Fair Trade Commission in 2010 on Samsung SDI in Malaysia for engaging in price-fixing of cathode ray tubes for televisions.
