On February 10, LG presented a case to the US District Court, Eastern District of Texas for enjoining from patent infringement and awarding damages to LGE arising out of their infringing activities. The company has led a discussion with TTE to resolve the problem since early 2005 with no progress.

LG has been partnering with TV makers in Japan and Europe by royalty contract for the infringed patents.

This lawsuit shows our strong will for protection of our own intellectual property.”
