LG requests to stop selling cars from BMW and AUDI in Korea

LG has started patent litigation in Korea and tries BMW and AUDI to stop selling the respective automobile models in Korea. The subject matter of the suit are LED flood lights by OSRAM which have been implemented in the auto models. This is probably a counter-attack as OSRAM had started patent litigation in Korea earlier with the attempt to force LG and SAMSUNG to stop exporting several types of LEDs. Corresponding suits had also been established in the U.S., Japan and China before.
