LG Display Seeking Ban on Samsung Galaxy Note Sales in South Korea

LG Display is seeking a ban on sales of Samsung's Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet in South Korea, claiming that it violates three of its patents covering the display screen.
LG Display is also seeking damages of US$933,000 per day for ongoing infractions while Samsung continues to sell the tablet device.
The latest move is an escalation in a patent dispute between the two companies over display patents.
Back in September, LG Display filed a patent lawsuit against a number of Samung smartphones citing OLED related patents. Samsung denies the claims, and has previously noted that it holds more display related patents than LG Display - so a tit-for-tat dispute could escalate even further if the two sides cannot agree a settlement.
Samsung recently filed its own patent lawsuit against LG Display.
