Troubles doesn’t seem to end for Samsung. After Apple it is South Korea’s LG Display, one of the world’s top flat-screen TV makers who have filed a copyright infringement suit against Samsung electronics over the use of advanced displays.
Samsung Electronics and Samsung Display have been accused of infringing seven of LG Display’s patents which are based on organic light-emitting diode (OLED) technology.
“This lawsuit has been filed both to enforce LG Display’s intellectual property rights and promote fair competition,” LG Display said in a statement.
The five Samsung products which have come under the fire includes the much popular Galaxy S- series smartphones and Galaxy Tab 7.7
The sister concern of LG electronics, LG Display further said “It would seek an unspecified amount of damages and a permanent injunction against the sale of infringing devices”.
Samsung has been keeping mum regarding this issue though in July it made allegations against LG Display employees for copying its OLED technology.
Samsung and LG, respectively are the world’s largest and second largest flat-screen TV makers and each of them claim that their technology makes for a brilliant TV viewing experience.
