Dynamic Digital Depth Research Pty Ltd. Files Patent Infringement Suit Against LG Electronics

DDD Group plc confirmed that Dynamic Digital Depth Research Pty Ltd. ('DDD') has filed a lawsuit in Los Angeles alleging that LG Electronics' range of 3D televisions infringe three of DDD's U.S. patents. The complaint alleges that the automatic 2D to 3D conversion function performed by LG's range of 3D televisions infringes the claims of DDD's U.S. Patent No. 6,477,267 "Image Conversion and Encoding Techniques", U.S. Patent No. 6,496,598 "Image Processing Method and Apparatus", and U.S. Patent No. 7,489,812 "Conversion and Encoding Techniques". The complaint notes that despite the fact that LG licensed DDD's TriDef 3D solutions for use with their 3D personal computer products and their 3D mobile phones, the engineering team responsible for the development of LG's 3D televisions pursued the development of their 3D TVs in full knowledge of the existence of DDD's patents and technologies. As a result, the complaint alleges that the LG has demonstrated a pattern of blatantly disregarding DDD's intellectual property and by doing so, LG is getting a "free ride" on DDD's decades of research and development, and unfairly competing in the marketplace since first announcing their range of 3D TVs in late 2009. The complaint seeks injunctive relief and unspecified monetary damages and contends that since LG's infringement has been, and continues to be, willful, DDD is entitled to seek treble damages and an award of its attorneys' fees, costs, and expenses.
