Samsung wins Sharp lawsuit

The long-standing legal battle over a patent related to liquid crystal displays between Samsung and Sharp has been settled, as a Tokyo court upheld Samsung's countersuit, filed back in 2007. Samsung noted on Friday that allegations in a June countersuit were upheld in a Japanese courtroom.

Sharp initially sued Samsung, the world's largest display panel maker, over similar though unspecified alleged infringements in August of 2007. Samsung filed two countersuits, one in a Tokyo courtroom, the other in a Delaware house of justice, and has also requested an investigation by the US International Trade Commission. The outcome of either the Delaware lawsuit nor the investigation request were not made public.

Such lawsuits are fairly common in the display panel manufacturing industry, as competitors try and gain an advantage over one another by forcing licensing or settlements.
