LG sues TCL in Germany over LTE patents

LG Electronics has filed a patent infringement lawsuit against TCL in Germany for allegedly infringing upon its LTE-related patents.

The South Korean electronics maker on Sunday accused its Chinese rival of allegedly applying three of LG's LTE standard essential patents onto its feature phones and smartphones without permission.

LG filed the lawsuits at district courts in the German cities of Mannheim and Dusseldorf.
