LG has responded to Whirlpools charge of patent infringement with the statement that they will respond “actively” to the charge. Huh? What does that mean?
“We will file a report to refute the charge with the ITC,” said Na Joo-young, an LG spokeswoman. “We will respond actively, but the process will take a long time.”
LG had no plan to file a counter suit over the case, she added.
I’m not sure what this means but I suspect that LG plans to mire this in legal proceedings which essentially means that they get to continue doing whatever they want and there is little that Whirlpool can do about it. Should be fun to watch though.
