When it comes to seeking injunctions against each other, Apple and Samsung come to mind, although lately it seems that there are other companies besides Apple who are interested in seeing some of Samsung’s products potentially banned from going on sale. According to a report, it seems that LG has filed an injunction against Samsung and they are seeking to have the Galaxy Note 10.1 banned from being sold, claiming that the tablet infringed upon LG’s patents.
The patent in question is also display related, and in this case pertains to a display technology embedded in the panel itself which is said to help enhance the visual quality regardless of the angle it is viewed at. This isn’t the first rocket fired by either company as Samsung has earlier this month sued LG for allegedly infringing upon seven of their patents regarding Samsung’s displays. According to an LG spokesperson, the company “seeks to completely stop the sale, manufacture, and importation” of the Galaxy Note 10.1. Samsung on the other hand seems to think that these claims are “unjustified”.
