Here’s an interesting press release, Vizio is filing suit against LG… not many times you see the little companies suing the big ones, usually it’s the other way around. You have to wonder why a big company like LG would infringe on the patents of a smaller company… Guess the competition got too much for them…

- Seeks Injunction and Monetary Damages

IRVINE, Calif., June 5 /PRNewswire/ — VIZIO, America’s #1 HDTV and Consumer Electronics Company, announced today that it has filed an infringement lawsuit in the United States District Court for the District of Maryland against LG Electronics, Inc., a Korean maker and seller of digital televisions, related components and other products, and its wholly-owned subsidiary LG Electronics U.S.A., Inc.
