ITC cleared LG in patent infringement case

The final determination from the U.S. ITC has acquitted LG Electronics of microprocessor patent infringement charges.

Technology Properties Limited LLC (TPL) filed a complaint in the ITC in July 2012, accusing LG and other respondents of infringement of U.S. Patent No. 5,809,336 related to variable speed system clocks in microprocessors.

LG had at the very outset denied violating any patent rights asserted by TPL, vigorously defending its products against TPL's claims during a seven-day trial in the ITC in June 2013.

After considering the facts presented at trial, an ITC Administrative Law Judge issued an initial determination in three months, in which no infringement by LG was found. Although TPL challenged the ALJ's initial determination, the ITC Commissioners issued their final determination yesterday confirming the ALJ's ruling.

Dr. Joosup Kim, VP of Intellectual Property Centre at LG, said, "LG Electronics has always believed that TPL's patent does not apply to LG products. We are pleased that the ITC's final determination vindicates LG's position."
