WASHINGTON, Feb. 19, 2014

WASHINGTON, Feb. 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --LG Electronics received a favorable
final determination from the U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC) in a
microprocessor patent infringement case.


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

LG maintained from the beginning that it does not violate any patent rights
asserted by TPL and its co-complainants, and LG vigorously defended its
products against TPL's claims during a seven-day trial in the ITC in June

After considering the evidence presented at trial, an ITC Administrative Law
Judge (ALJ) issued an initial determination in September 2013 in which he
found no infringement by LG. Although TPL challenged the ALJ's initial
determination, the ITC Commissioners issued their final determination today
confirming the ALJ's ruling of no infringement by LG.

Dr. Joosup Kim, vice president, Intellectual Property Center, LGElectronics,
Inc., 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."
