ABSTRACT
The article informs that Samsung Co. Ltd. is being sued by the publicly-owned French research agency the CEA for allegedly infringing patents on LCDs. This is the third time the CEA has started proceedings against the firm. The action was brought in Tokyo last week, in relation to two patents on vertically aligned (VA) LCD technology which Samsung currently uses to improve viewing angle and image quality in its TV and computer screens. The CEA said many of the world's manufacturers of LCD screens are now using the same process. The previous actions were brought in the U.S. in May 2003, and in France in July this year, which resulted in a summons scheduled for November 23 in Paris.
