Taiwan's AU seeks injunction on LG exports to US

May 02, 2010

Taiwan's AU Optronics Corp said Sunday it would seek an injunction barring South Korean rival LG Display from exporting some products to the United States after winning a patent row.

The move comes after , a leading Taiwanese LCD manufacturer, won its latest legal battle with LG Display in the US over the Korean firm's patent infringement.

AU Optronics said in a statement it would seek an injunction preventing its rival from exporting to and selling in the US products which infringed its patents.

"AUO hopes that LGD's customers will immediately cease purchasing any unauthorised infringing products from LGD for sale or use in the US without the need for further court action," it said.

In 2006, LG Display filed a infringement action against the Taiwanese firm, which filed a counter-claim.

The Delaware district court ruled in February that LG Display infringed on four of AU Optronics' patents. On Friday it ruled that the Taiwanese firm did not infringe on any of the four patents claimed by LG Display, AU Optronics said.

The patented technologies help improve response time and improve reliability of LCDs.

The infringing products cover a wide variety of applications, including LCD panels for TVs, monitors, notebooks, public information displays and mobile phones.
