LG Files Patent Infringement Complaints Against BLU Products In US

Last updated:

LG has filed complaints with the U.S. International Trade Commission and United States District Court for the District of Delaware against BLU and its products for infringing five LG patents that have been declared as essential to the LTE standard.

LG took these legal actions against BLU following numerous unsuccessful attempts over the past year to engage BLU in licensing discussions.

These are the first complaints LG has filed against another phone manufacturer. It was filed because BLU, the largest seller of unlocked smartphones in the United States, has ignored all of LG’s attempts to discuss a license to LG’s intellectual property. LG is determined to enforce its intellectual property rights.

TechIPm, an intellectual property and technology research and consulting company, analyzed LTE smartphone patent registrations in the United States over the past several years and has concluded that LG is one of the largest holders of U.S. LTE Standard Essential Patents.
