LG seeks to ban sale of BMWs in Osram patent row

In the latest escalation of the patent row among LED makers, LG Electronics is asking a Korean court to ban the sale of BMW and Audi cars with Osram headlights, because they allegedly infringe patents.

The dispute began when Osram took action against LG and its fellow Korean manufacturer Samsung in the US, Germany and Japan courts this summer, accusing them of infringing its patents on white LEDs.
But LG and Samsung retaliated, alleging that Osram in Seoul had infringed their intellectual property. They also filed a complaint with the South Korean trade commission, seeking a ban on the import of LED products from Osram.
