LG Display Takes a Crack at Samsung with Patent Dispute
LG Display today filed a lawsuit against competitor Samsung in the companies' home market of Korea. LG alleges that Samsung is violating LG's OLED display patents in its smartphones and tablets. LG is seeking damages and a permanent injunction to prevent Samsung from selling the infringing devices in Korea. Some of the products named include the Galaxy S III and Galaxy Note. Samsung responded to the lawsuit by saying that it has more display-related patents than LG does, and will consider taking action against LG if necessary.
