2023-07-06 [U.S. Patent Infringement] OLED patent war, Samsung Display Co., Ltd. sued Boe Technology Group Co., Ltd. for infringement in U.S.

Korean Samsung has been in constant disputes with Chinese industry players recently. After Cui Zhen-shi, the former Samsung executive, was accused of building factories to steal data in China in this May, Samsung Display Co., Ltd., a subsidiary of Samsun Electronics Co., Ltd., recently filed a lawsuit in the Federal Court of U.S. Texas. Samsung Display Co., Ltd. accused Boe Technology Group Co., Ltd., China’s leading panel manufacturer, of infringing Samsung’s 5 OLED patents when Boe Technology Group Co., Ltd. manufactured Apple’s iPhone 12 and other electronic devices.

According to foreign media reporting, Samsung Display Co., Ltd., asked Federal Jury of Texas of U.S. to award damages for patent infringement of organic light-emitting diode (OLED) displayer provided by Boe Technology Group Co., Ltd.

Omdia, a market research company, indicated that Korean always is a major manufacturer of chips, displayers and other products, and Samsung Display Co., Ltd., is even more dominant in the OLED screen market. However, in 2022, Boe Technology Group Co., Ltd., surpassed Samsung Display Co., Ltd., and became the second largest panel manufacturer in the world. It can be seen that Korean companies have faced growing competition threats from Chinese companies in recent years.

Otherwise, in December 2022, Samsung Display Co., Ltd., also filed a lawsuit in USITC, United Stated International Trade Commission. Samsung Display Co., Ltd., accused a number of U.S. screen manufacturers of infringing on its patents, replacing Samsung’s displayer with Chinese-made displayer, and named 17 U.S. OLED wholesalers as defendants. USITC immediately investigated. However, the industry agreed that Boe Technology Group Co., Ltd., is the real target of Samsung Display Co., Ltd.,.

However, Boe Technology Group Co., Ltd., is not to be taken lightly. In this May, Boe Technology Group Co., Ltd., filed a lawsuit in Chongqing court. Boe Technology Group Co., Ltd., filed patent infringement lawsuits of total 6 accusations against Samsung Display Co., Ltd., and its Chinese company as well as Samsun Electronics Co., Ltd., business in China.
