LG Electronics and Sony have entered into a cross-license agreement
to share patent portfolios, calling a truce in a patent war that
began last year.
LG said Thursday the two firms agreed to drop patent infringement
lawsuits but did not reveal the details of the deal.
Sony filed a complaint in December last year with the U.S.
International Trade Commission claiming that LG infringed its patent
technologies for mobile phones. In response, in February this year
LG sued the Japanese firm for patent infringement over digital TVs
and Blu-ray technology in the U.S. and Europe.
