U.S. trade agency eyes Samsung-Sharp spat

Samsung's claim of LCD-related patent infringement by rival Sharp draws the attention of the U.S. International Trade Commission.

A U.S. trade court has agreed to look into Samsung's claims that Japanese rival Sharp had infringed its patents relating to LCD (liquid crystal display) technology.

The U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC) said in a statement on its Web site this week that it has "voted to institute an investigation" into Samsung's complaint of patent infringement by Sharp, filed Dec. 1.

The Korean company's allegations, according to the statement, are made against Sharp Corp. of Japan and two of its American subsidiaries.
