The Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1
Perhaps it is because they both are based in South Korea. Or perhaps it is just that both Samsung and LG are like the rest of us and are sick and tired of hearing about legal issues in the industry. But the news is that both Samsung and LG have dropped requests
with the Seoul Central District Court of Korea for preliminary injunctions. The issue revolves around a claim made by Samsung that LG stole some of its technology related to the production of OLED screens
Samsung filed for a preliminary injunction as did LG. The latter sought a sales ban on the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1
But Samsung decided to withdraw its filing as did LG as both firms decided to try to reach an amicable resolution. If only other companies would follow this lead, perhaps the world would be a nicer place
to live in. Right, Apple?
"LG Display seeks to stop the consuming dispute with Samsung and to continue its promotion of fair competition. Based on the firm belief that a patent should be fairly assessed as a product of innovation, LG Display seeks an alternative solution through an amicable negotiation with Samsung to clarify the respective rights and duties of each party and analyze the proper value of the patents"-LG
