LG seeking an injunction on Samsung tablet sales in Korea LG is seeking an injunction on Samsung tablet sales in Korea, the home country of both companies.
The tablet in question is the Galaxy Note 10.1, and LG has cited alleged patent infringements relating to the LCD panels used by the device.

"Through this action, LG Display seeks to completely stop the sale, manufacture and importation of the infringing Samsung product," LG Display added.

Outside of the injunction, the company is also seeking damages of "1 billion won ($933,000) per day in the event of continued non-compliance."

The battle between the companies extends back to September when LG filed suit against Samsung over seven patents relating to OLED technology. Samsung shot back claiming LG stole Samsung OLED researchers even though they were under NDA contracts.
