Submission + - AU Optronics Asks for Ban on US LG LCD Sales (pcworld.com)

eldavojohn writes: After a lengthy patent case complete with counter suits, AU Optronics has asked for an injunction against all LCD products made by LG. While this may not sound serious, LG is the number one manufacturer of LCDs used in LCD-TVs, laptop PCs and desktop monitors. A quarter of global LCDs shipped in March were LG brand. The bizarre part of the story is that LG Display struck first against AU Optronics way back in 2006 with a patent suit to the tune of $690 million dollars and in 2009 when the case finally went to court AUO filed counter claims of patent infringement that are now coming to fruition. So before you call AUO a patent troll, keep in mind that LGD shot first.
