LG and Hitachi plama patent war escalates

June 19th, 2007 · No Comments

LG and Hitachi are exchanging lawsuits over patents. LG, which itself is being sued by Hitachi, has now launched a countersuit, claiming that Hitachi and its joint venture panel-making operation FHPD, has infringed seven of its patents. The legal ping pong has been raging for three years.
“Intellectual property is one of LG’s essential assets, which we will always uncompromisingly protect,” insists Jeong Hwan Lee, executive vice president and head of LG Electronics Intellectual Property Center. “Japanese firms are filing more and more lawsuits as competition in the global display market has increased dramatically. We will proactively deal with the situation based on our patented and patent-applied-for technologies.”
