Samsung Electronics Files Lawsuit for Libel against Dyson

Samsung Electronics filed a lawsuit for libel against Dyson claiming that Dyson tarnished its reputation. Samsung took the case to the Seoul Central District Court. The move came after Dyson withdrew its patent infringement lawsuit against Samsung. The compensation claimed is estimated to be KRW 10 billion ($9.4 million), based on Samsung's brand value of about KRW 63 trillion. However, the company said this was only the initial compensation, hinting that the settlement amount would rise down the road.
