Lawsuit in Korea: LG countersues Samsung for infringing on OLED patents
More specifically, LG has found out that Samsung has infringed on seven of its patents with the following devices: Galaxy S III, Galaxy S II HD, Galaxy Note, Galaxy S II and Galaxy Tab 7.7. One of the seven patents is said to deal with LG's "Narrow Bezel" technology. LG will try to take home about $6.26 million after the end of the case.
Here's an official statement by LG regarding the matter:
Well, what do you know, it looks like not only Apple knows how to make love in the courtroom.

Samsung is using OLED screens? I thought they were AMOLED..
And since when have LG produced a phone using their own technology? Their own phones are predominantly IPS LCD's...
Oh well. Good luck sammy

And this is why we can never get the perfect phone, one company makes this phone which has something I like, another company makes another phone with something else I like, but can never be put together because of this s**t...

C'mon Samsung don't be like Apple you suppose to be better than that.

Samsung didn't violate anything, they have the right to sue because they've invented OLED, besides L.G. contersued *not related to OLED but Narrow Bezel lol, this sounds familiar with the rounded rectangles+Apple :}

You know what...don't even care anymore, it's too much. I'm officially consumed with apathy regarding tech giants and lawsuits.

oh come now boys let's keep it in the family. Stop the fighting.
I am sure we can sit and settle our differences rather than behave like uncivilized Rotten Apples!

LG obviously has stolen the oled technolgie from samsung...

LG fights back because they don't want Samsung pushing them around.

LG and Samsung 's lawsuits has nothing to do with Apple, They both have been suing each other before apple even made their first ipod.
