Samsung LG Patent Dispute

Samsung (005930) has decided to drop a patent infringement suit against LG (066570) regarding LCD technologies, the Yonhap News Agency reported. The two companies have been embroiled in a patent battle over OLED and LCD technologies over the past year, however Samsung and LG have dropped recent claims and are moving closer to patent peace.

Samsung abandoned its OLED patent infringement claim in early February and LG followed suit later that month, ending an injunction request against the Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet. Earlier reports indicated that both companies were interested in resolving their patent disputes behind closed doors.

As one door closes, however, another door opens. LG on Tuesday said Samsung’s Galaxy S 4 smartphone may infringe upon its eye-tracking technology and it plans to further evaluate the device following its release.
