Samsung & Sharp Patent Battle Wages On; This Month Samsung Comes Out Victorious

Posted Mar 25, 2009

A District Court in Tokyo has sided with Samsung Electronics in an LCD panel patent dispute against Sharp.  Samsung filed the lawsuit around June 2008 and claimed that Sharp was infringing on their patents.  Samsung has a patent on “a LCD module manufacturing technology.”  Sharp was order to halt production, import, and export of their LC-32D10 LCD TV.

Last month Sharp won a patent dispute against Samsung too.  Sharp claimed that an LCD module that was included in several TVs manufactured by Samsung violated their parents.  The patent reflected upon LCD technologies such as wide viewing angles and enhance resposne speeds.
