LG.Philips LCD said that an arbitration panel in New York decided in its favor, in a dispute over technology ownership with Chunghwa Picture Tubes (CPT).

The panel ruled that LG.Philips LCD holds exclusive ownership rights for its side-mounting patents, over which CPT filed for arbitration in July 2004. This ruling is expected to give the company an advantage in its patent dispute with CPT that is currently pending.

The company initially filed a patent suit against Taiwan-based CPT, alleging infringement of its side-mounting technology patents, in August 2002. Despite the countersuit CPT filed in June 2004, claiming ownership of LG.Philips LCD's patents, the arbitration panel recently denied all of CPT's relief.

Separately, the company filed patent infringement suits against CPT in federal court in California for patent infringement, including those for its side-mounting technology. The new case is scheduled for trial in October.
