圖、液晶顯示面板專利訴訟 IC Display Systems控告宏碁、友達、LG
 
本案為註冊於美國德拉瓦州的專利授權公司IC Display Systems LLC,2016年10月18日向美國德拉瓦州聯邦地方法院遞狀指控台灣液晶顯示面板大廠友達光電(AU Optronics)、科技大廠宏碁(ACER)、韓國樂金電子(LG)以及日本數位影像產品大廠柯尼卡美能達(Konica Minolta),所生產販售之液晶顯示器等產品侵害其所持有之編號5,892,561美國專利請求項1-3。
 
受原告IC Display Systems指控侵權之四家廠商,其中宏碁、友達及韓國樂金之侵權產品,以電腦螢幕等液晶顯示器為主,日商Konica Minolta侵權產品部分則以該公司具液晶觸控面板之數位影印機產品為主(參見下表一整理)。原告於訴狀中,具體主張侵權損失賠償救濟以及依據美國專利法285條之合理律師費,而並未要求禁售侵權產品,亦要求法院應就本案舉行陪審團庭審。
 
本案系爭專利5,892,561「具有一粘合劑平滑層以減少基板外表面瑕疵之液晶面板」(LC panel with reduced defects having adhesive smoothing layer on an exterior surface of the substrate(s)),核准日期為1999年4月6日,優先權日為1995年10月18日,發明人為Toshihiro Suzuki、Yoshinori Tanaka、Katsushige Asada以及Kenji Okamoto,原專利權人為日商富士通(Fujitsu Ltd),後轉讓給知名專利授權公司Intellectual Ventures LLC。本案原告於今年(2016)10月11日,自一家專利授權公司Nbit Communications Systems LLC方面取得本項專利。
 
561專利發明內容敘述一種液晶面板(A,參見圖一),其中夾帶一液晶層之第一及第二透明基板(B、E,圖一)各具有兩個主表面(C、D、F、G,圖一),並透過增加一粘合劑層(K,圖二),來將一附帶有電介質多層膜(L、圖二)之透明膜(J、圖二)粘附在前述第一或第二基板C、G主表面,致使粘合劑層能夠成為一種具有近似基板折射率之材料,可用來填充並修補第一和第二基板表面微小瑕疵,藉此來獲得一種具有較佳冷卻效率之液晶投影裝置。原告在訴狀中,具體描述並主張被告液晶面板產品等之結構組成情形,符合前述561專利特徵。

在訴狀揭露,本案原告IC Display System為Intellectual Ventures LLC子公司,既無營業項目及產品等資訊。經本網站調查原告過去並無任何訴訟紀錄,旗下僅持有2項LCD面板技術相關專利(US 5,892,561以及US 5,838,415,皆曾經為Intellectual Ventures持有),且於今年購入561專利後,即立刻向法院控告台日韓4家電子廠商侵權。未來,IC Display System或可能再對其他液晶顯示器業者提告,後續再觀察。(868字;圖2)
