They're talking about 1996-2006 when CRT was very much a current technology. You're right that a large fine won't help Panasonic, but since when did being poor make it OK to break the law?

Interesting that companies received such a fine for technology that is no longer even used. What exactly was the anti-competitive effect? Did this stop flat screen development or technology advancement? A couple of the companies fined can afford the fees but some, e.g. Panasonic, are in the midst of layoffs and the fees could have the anti-competitive effect of actually eliminating competition. It seems the EC is the biggest anti-competitive body out there.
