Honeywell sues LCD Makers

Honeywell has filed a lawsuit in Texas against several LCD TV producers, according to the Taipei Times. The American company claims that key manufacturers -- including ASUS, BenQ, and assembly firms such as AU Optronics -- have violated a patent it holds in the US relating to anti-flicker compensation. The infringment has caused "irreparable harm" to Honeywell's business, the suit reads.

If successful, the court action could severely damage the TV industry by forcing many sets off the market until the feature is changed or removed. AU Optronics in particular would suffer, says the newspaper, as it produces the screens used by larger companies such as LG and Samsung. None of the affected companies have been fully notified of the suit. [via The Inquirer]
