SANYO Files Patent Infringement Suit Against Sharp

Tokyo, Jan 30, 2012 (JCN) - SANYO Electric Co. Ltd has filed patent infringement lawsuits against Sharp Corp. in the Tokyo District Court. SANYO is seeking permanent injunctions and compensatory damages for the liquid crystal display (LCD) modules of televisions and mobile phones manufactured and sold by Sharp based on four LCD-related patents owned by SANYO, namely JP 3,005,418; JP 3,011,720; JP 4,353,660; and JP 3,723,336.

These patents relate to the technology that widens the range of the viewing angle of the LCD and improves the display quality. SANYO has pioneered the wide viewing angle technology in vertical alignment method, which is used in most LCD TVs and high-definition display mobile phones, and has been granting licenses under LCD patents owned by SANYO, including the above four patents, to domestic and overseas major LCD module manufacturers.
