Not long after suing Apple over alleged patent infringements, Nokia has now (well, actually on November 25) filed a new suit, this time against a group of LCD manufacturers, which apparently have “artificially inflated the price of liquid crystal displays ultimately incorporated into LCD products purchased by Nokia, causing Nokia to pay higher prices.”
The LCD makers sued by Nokia include Samsung, LG, AU Optronics, Toshiba, Philips and others.
The lawsuit was filed with the US District Court in San Francisco, California.
If Nokia wins, the mentioned LCD makers will probably have to pay big money to it.
Nokia recently filed a similar lawsuit in the UK, too.
