Lawsuit in Korea: LG countersues Samsung for infringing on OLED patents

Lawsuit in Korea: LG countersues Samsung for infringing on OLED patents
Shortly after Samsung accused LG of stealing its intellectual property related to OLED displays, LG's display division decided to return fire and sue Samsung for infringing on some of its own OLED-related 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...

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.
