Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. (005930) files lawsuit against Dyson

Posted Feb 17, 2014

Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. (KRX:005930) has filed a lawsuit against Dyson for 10 billion won (about $9.4 million USD). Dyson claimed that one of Samsung’s products looked like a “cynical rip-off” of their designs. Dyson also sued Samsung last year for infringing on their patented vacuum-steering system. The lawsuit was dropped, but Samsung alleges that they were depicted as a repeat patent violator. Samsung said that this “seriously hurt its corporate image.” They said Dyson’s  “groundless litigation” was “intolerable.”
