LG Display suing Samsung over Galaxy Note 10.1′s screen

LG Display suing Samsung over Galaxy Note 10.1's screen

Like Samsung already doesn’t have enough legal problems with Apple, LG’s screen-making arm is joining what seems as a trend, suing the electronics super-giant and asking it to stop selling the Galaxy Note 10.1. LG Display claims Sammy’s tablet infringes on display technology that makes it easier to view the screen at many different angles.

LG’s division wants to get the tablet banned at all levels, including importation, retail and even manufacturing. Moreover, they want some $933,000 per day for each day of “continued non-compliance,” which translates into roughly $130 million.

Samsung Display’s vice president Shim Jaeboo says LG Display’s claims are bogus, adding that LG’s case won’t go far.

We’re not sure what to make of this and will rather have to wait for the next piece of news coming from the court room. Of course, we’ll let you know when we hear something worth ranting about it. Stay tuned…
