LG Seeks Ban For Samsung's Galaxy Note 10.1 Tablet

Continuing the ongoing legal battles between the two technology companies, LG is seeking a ban for Samsung's Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet.

An injunction filed today by LG details the firm's plan to ban Samsung's Galaxy Note 10.1 in Korea. The former alleges that the tablet's display panel infringes on certain patents it owns. LG said it filed the suit over Samsung's utilization of OLED displays.

The patents in question relates to the viewing technology used in OLED displays. The tech helps consumers better view the screen from any angle. As well as seeking a sales ban for the Galaxy Note 10.1, LG is also demanding damages of $933,000 each day in the event of "continued non-compliance".

Back in September, LG filed a patent lawsuit against Samsung, claiming the South Korean technology giant violated seven of its OLED patents. The latter meanwhile, filed its own suit against LG in November in hopes to invalidate the patents in question as they "lack innovation".
