LG seeks sales ban on Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet in South Korea

The display maker has accused Samsung of infringing three of its patents on the liquid crystal display (LCD) panels deployed on the Galaxy Note.

By CBR Staff Writer

South Korean display maker LG Display has filed an injunction in court seeking ban on sales of Samsung’s Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet computer in the home market.

The display maker has accused Samsung of infringing three of its patents related to the liquid crystal display (LCD) panels used on the Galaxy Note.

LG said in a statement through the action, the firm seeks to completely stop the sale, manufacture, and importation of [the] infringing Samsung product.

"LG Display is also seeking damages of 1 billion won ($933,000) per day in the event of "continued non-compliance," the South Korean display maker said.

The injunction request, which is the latest development in the ongoing patent fight between LG Display and Samsung’s subsidiary that produces screens used in smartphones, tablets and televisions, also signals rising competition as the two firms jostle for marketshare.

LG’s move follows a lawsuit filed by Samsung Display alleging the firm of infringing seven of Samsung’s liquid crystal display patents.

The infringed patents are concerned to the display technology embedded in the display panels, which assists in enhancing the visual quality despite the viewing angle.
