AU Optronics has been fighting a patent battle in court against LG Display for years. The patent war started back in December of 2006 when LG Display filed a patent suit against AUO. In February of 2010, courts sided with AUO in the case.
The courts found that LG Display infringed on all four of AUO’s patents that were central to the case and at the same time ruled that AUO infringed on none of the patents held by LG. AUO is now seeking an injunction against LG Display.
The injunction will prevent LG from importing any of its products that use infringing technology into the country. The injunction AUO seeks will also prevent LG from exporting or selling the infringing products at all.
