back to US court with another patent dispute. This time, it's not Hitachi they're
after impeding, it's laptop OEM Quanta, and their alleged abuse of four LG DVD patents. The suit filed in Wisconsin court seeks monetary compensation and an injunction which prevents Quanta from using their DVD technology in laptops. While Quanta does build laptops for Apple, HP, Dell, and Sony among others, we'd be surprised if a successful injunction request has any effect on laptop availability. After all, nobody is silly enough to sole-source their gear are they? No doubt the kids at Foxconn are snickering with joy right about now.
