LG and Samsung Resolve Their OLED and LCD Lawsuits

Posted Feb 4, 2013

LG and Samsung have resolved their lawsuits regarding OLED patents.  In September 2012, LG filed a lawsuit against Samsung regarding OLED display and filed a countersuit in November 2012.  The two companies have settled outside of court after a government ministry persuaded the CEOs of LG Display and Samsung Display to meet at a hotel in Seoul.

When LG filed the lawsuit, they had attempted to get a sales ban on Samsung devices like the Galaxy Note and Galaxy Tab 7.7.  Samsung had accused LG of violating the copying plate-to-line (PLS) switching technology without paying royalties.
