Samsung is no stranger to public patent cases, thanks to Apple, however it now seems another company going after the Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet. That company is LG Display and they are looking to stop the sale, manufacture and importation of the Note 10.1. And on top of that, they are also going after compensation for damages should the tablet remain available for sale.
According to a recent report, LG Display is looking for compensation of 1.0 billion won (about $933,000) per day. LG Display filed the injunction this past week and are claiming that Samsung is infringing three patents which deal with the liquid crystal display (LCD) panels used on the tablet.
The LG Display patents are said to deal with viewing technology embedded in the display. Specifically, these patents deal with the improving the quality regardless of the viewing angle. Samsung on the other hand believes they have not infringed on any of LG’s patents. In fact, a statement from Shim Jaeboo, a vice president of Samsung Display, has called these “unjustified claims.”
Otherwise, in addition to this recently filed suit, LG Display and Samsung also have some other ongoing patent cases. The other cases began back in September when LG Display accused Samsung of infringing patents on seven organic light-emitting diode (OLED)-related technologies. These are used in five Samsung products including some Galaxy S and Galaxy Tab devices.
