It seems Apple is not the only company seeking to ban the sale of a Samsung product. In Korea, LG is seeking to ban the sale of the Galaxy Note 10.1, the tablet version of the Galaxy Note 2.
The report comes to us courtesy of Dow Jones. LG says, “Through this action, LG Display seeks to completely stop the sale, manufacture, and importation of [the] infringing Samsung product.” The Korean display maker is also looking to get $1 million for every day the tablet stays on sale. LG is likely to take this fight to other countries as well.
According to the site, “The injunction follows a lawsuit filed by Samsung Display Co. on Dec. 7, which alleged that LG infringed seven of Samsung’s liquid crystal display patents. LG, which filed the injunction with the Seoul District Court on Wednesday, is aiming to block the sales of the Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet computer.”
In response to LG trying to ban the sale of the Galaxy Note 10.1, vice president of Samsung display, Shim Jaeboo, denied that his company infringed LG’s patents. He also said that the Korean tech giant will be responding to the “unjustified claims” of LG.
