LG to countersue Hitachi - June 18th, 2007

Patent row: LG to countersue Hitachi

Monday, June 18, 2007 (Seoul):

South Korea's LG Electronics Inc said on Monday that it will file a counter-lawsuit against Hitachi Ltd, its US unit and a flat-panel joint venture, claiming the Japanese company infringed on patents related to LG's plasma displays.

"The patent infringement and damage compensation lawsuit will be filed in a US district court in the US state of Texas later Monday," LG Electronics said in a statement.

Hitachi officials weren't immediately available for comment.

LG said its complaint alleges Hitachi, its US unit and Fujitsu Hitachi Plasma Display Ltd, a joint venture with Japan's Fujitsu Ltd., infringed on seven LG patents.

The South Korean company is a major manufacturer of plasma display panels used in flat screen televisions.

LG's lawsuit follows a similar suit that Hitachi filed against LG Electronics and its US unit in the same court.

Plasma panels

Hitachi filed the suit April 23, saying LG has infringed on seven Hitachi patents, also related to plasma display panels.

Hitachi sought monetary compensation and a permanent injunction prohibiting the sale of LG's plasma display products in the US.

"Japanese firms are filing more and more lawsuits as competition in the global display market has increased dramatically," said Lee Jeong-hwan, executive vice president of LG.

"We will proactively deal with the situation based on our patented and patent-applied-for technologies," he added.

LG and Hitachi have been trying to reach a settlement regarding patents related to plasma display technologies since 2005.

Shares in LG Electronics rose 1.9 per cent to 79,700 won in midday trading.
