Seoul - South Korea's Samsung SDI said on Wednesday it has filed a patent violation lawsuit in the United States against Japan's Matsushita and its subsidiary Panasonic.

The legal action came after a year of negotiations failed to resolve a dispute between Samsung SDI and Matsushita over plasma display panel (PDP) technologies.

"We filed a case against Matsushita and Panasonic over their violation of our patents on key PDP manufacturing technology," Samsung SDI said in a statement.

Samsung SDI is the world's largest maker of PDPs, which are flat screens used for thin televisions and other display monitors and are one of the fastest growing segments in the hi-tech market. - AFP
