    From Android Authority:

    "The claim is that LG ripped off of Samsung’s OLED patents. This isn’t your typical patent infringement suit. Instead of wanting money or preventing products from being sold, Samsung wants LG Display’s OLED patents invalidated. Samsung is asking that the Korean Intellectual Property Office revoke a total of seven patents from LG.

    According to Phandroid, Samsung claims these seven patents aren’t innovative enough to be patents. If Samsung wins, then the patents would be invalidated and LG would no longer have control over that technology. Both Samsung’s Galaxy line up and many LG televisions use OLED screens."​

    And on it goes...

    I don't think this has anything to do with Android.

    Mabe Apple will sue Samsung for suing LG because they think that suing over patents was their idea, hence IP ?

    So Samsung is the new Apple.

    First Samsung SIII becomes the best selling phone that even your dad and mom owns. No longer cool.

    Now they are suing other Android companies over patents.

    Oh my.
